Review of national aid schemes introduced during the financial crisis
The European Commission's Directorate-General for Competition has issued a review of the aid schemes introduced by EU Member States and approved by the Commission during the financial crisis. In the review, the DG for Competition addresses the effectiveness of the schemes implemented to date and analyses issues raised by Member States in this context. The review furthermore consolidates the requirements common to all approved guarantee and recapitalisation schemes, in order to provide additional transparency on the general standard for all such schemes. Finally, the review gives an overview per Member State of the public resources involved as a percentage of GDP.
