Regional State aides: opening of a public consultation by the European Commission

According to the free trade principle, no State aids are allowed by the treaty establishing the European Union. However, certain aids are accepted when dealing with the development of regions in trouble. These regional state aids aim at encouraging investment, employment and new businesses and is dedicated to both big and small enterprises.

The frame within which these aids can be allocated is negotiated for each European budgetary period. As a result, the frame for the 2014-2020 period is currently under debate. The European Commission opened a public consultation on this issue. INSULEUR will answer the consultation paper. We also invite you to send your comments directly to the European Commission.
