THE EU WATCHDOG HAS BITTEN THE WRONG HAND

The Financial Times - February 18, 2009 by Giuliano Amato and Emma Bonino* Sir, following EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes' letter (Do not place Europe’s golden goose in jeopardy, Feb 16), we never proposed to give member states a role in applying state aid rules. To the contrary, we stated very clearly that this is a role strictly for the Commission. The task forces we proposed for the banking and automotive industries are meant, as far as member states are concerned, to increase coordination in state aid measures by communicating to each other and the Commission plans instead of decisions, whereby avoiding fait accompli tactics on the part of member states – tactics that we unambiguously criticized. The two task forces, we emphasized, should be chaired by none other than the Commission. And this in order to give to it an ex ante role, instead of the current ex post remedies. We are living exceptional times and we thought the Commission, the watchdog, was running the risk of being overwhelmed by daily announcements of state aid measures, thus preventing it from being effective. As sometimes happens to watchdogs, it has bitten the wrong hand. * Former Prime Minister of Italy and Emma Bonino Former EU Commissioner Member, European Council on Foreign Relations
