The European Commission has opened an in-depth investigation to establish whether measures in favour of Hungarian fertiliser producer Péti Nitrogénmvek infringe EC Treaty State aid rules. The measures include loans granted by the Hungarian Development Bank amounting to approximately €85 million, covered by State guarantees. Hungary did not notify these measures. The Commission has opened an in-depth inquiry due to concerns as regards the compatibility of the measures with EC State aid rules. The in-depth investigation will allow interested parties to comment on the measure under scrutiny. It does not prejudge the Commission’s final decision.
