  • [01] Liban : la Commission alloue une aide humanitaire de €4 millions aux victimes des combats dans le camp de réfugiés de Nahr el Bared

    La Commission européenne a accordé une aide supplémentaire de €4 millions en faveur des victimes des combats qui se déroulent dans le camp de réfugiés palestiniens de Nahr el Bared. Cette aide s'adresse avant tout aux réfugiés palestiniens qui ont fui le camp pour trouver refuge dans d'autres camps et d'autres abris au Liban ainsi qu'aux autres personnes vulnérables directement touchées par le conflit, dont des Libanais. A la fin mai, la Commission a débloqué une première enveloppe de €500.000 pour porter secours aux réfugiés déplacés. Les fonds transitent par ECHO, la direction générale de l'aide humanitaire de la Commission, placée sous la responsabilité du commissaire Louis Michel.

    [02] Commission clears proposed acquisition of GE Plastics by Sabic

    The European Commission has cleared under the EC Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of GE Plastics of the US by Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic), based in Saudi-Arabia. After examining the effects of the operation on customers and competitors, the Commission concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area or a substantial part of it.

    [03] Commission confirms sending statement of objections to companies in sodium chlorate sector

    The European Commission can confirm that a Statement of Objections has been sent to a number of companies regarding their role in a cartel for sodium chlorate, alleging that they violated Article 81 of the EC Treaty and Article 53 of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Sodium chlorate is mainly used as a bleaching agent in the pulp and paper industry.

    [04] Volume of retail trade up by 0.9% in euro area

    In June 2007, compared to June 2006, the volume of retail trade grew by 0.9% in the euro area (EA13) and by 2.2% in the EU27. Compared to May 2007, the retail sales index rose by 0.4% and 0.5% respectively. In June 2007, compared to June 2006, retail trade of "food, drinks and tobacco" fell by 0.4% in the euro area and by 0.1% in the EU27. The non food sector increased by 2.1% and 4.1% respectively. Among the Member States for which data are available, total retail trade rose in sixteen Member States and fell only in Germany (-2.5%). The largest increases were observed in Latvia (+24.4%), Lithuania (+16.1%), Estonia (+13.0%) and Poland (+9.2%). These first estimates come from Eurostat.
