Michele Piergiovanni, Head of Unit C.5 (mergers – IT, telecoms and media) in DG COMP of the European Commission, will give a presentation in English on:

“The Commission decision in Siemens/Alstom”

Michele will discuss the recent decision of the European Commission to block Siemens’ proposed takeover of Alstom’s activities in the railway sector, with a particular focus on the competition concerns identified by the Commission in the key problematic markets and on the reasons why the Commission considered the remedies offered not sufficient to address these concerns”.
