The European Commission has come up with a new initiative which should contribute to a more comprehensive coordination of national economic policies concerning state aid. State aid control also has a strategic role because it helps Member States to improve the quality of their public spending and therefore to stabilize the whole internal market.
The proposal focuses on the identification of common principles for assessing the compatibility of aid within the internal market, on the revision and consolidation of State aid guidelines, Block Exemption Regulation. It also aims to clarify the notion of State aid and modernize the Procedural Regulation of the state aid.
