EU temporary state aid: Officially published

The European Commission’s Communication ‘Temporary Community framework for State aid measures to support access to finance in the current financial and economic crisis’ has now been published in the Official Journal of the European Union 22.1.2009 C 16/1:

The nine pages of the Communication form a richly documented crash course in EC (EU) state aid law, both previously existing principles and new temporary measures to counter the economic recession.

The Commission applies the Communication from 17 December 2008, the date on which it agreed in principle its content, but not beyond 31 December 2010.
