ERFA welcomes the European Commission’s decision to prohibit the merger between Siemens and Alstom.
Carole Coune, Acting Secretary General of ERFA : We applaud the decision of Mrs Vestager to reject the Siemens-Alstom merger in her role of guardian of the Treaty and its competition rules.
Such a merger would have increased costs for European industry at a time when railway undertakings are redoubling their efforts to achieve excellence. But our European industry must be protected by a real reciprocity of the market access conditions.
