Germany and France urge Siemens and ALSTOM to merge against CRRC

the European Commission may prevent a super merger of European Railway giants, and the French and German governments are making every effort to promote the successful merger against CRRC, which accounts for half of the global railway market

on Friday, Bloomberg quoted an insider as saying that the European Commission was expected to veto the plan of Siemens and ALSTOM to merge the railway sector because of concerns that the merger would stifle competition in the European Union railway equipment market

the French and German governments supported the merger with both hands, believing that it could create a European market leader that could compete with CRRC

according to Reuters, France should attach great importance to and guard against all kinds of risks in finance tactics. Minister le Maire warned on Monday that if the merger is rejected, the EU will make economic and political mistakes, and we cannot make industrial decisions in the 21st century through the competition rules of the 20th century. German Economy Minister Peter altmaier told Reuters that the negotiations are at an important stage, and we will make every effort to give this project a chance

the European Commission will decide whether to approve the merger before February 18. Vestager, the EU antitrust Commissioner, declined to comment on the possible outcome of this decision, but stressed the importance of defending the interests of consumers rather than establishing a European Industrial champion. Vestager said at the press conference that the EU has no prejudice against large-scale mergers and acquisitions and the creation of European champions, as long as they abide by some basic rules

the merger of Alstom and Siemens reminds observers that Europe is entering a climax of strong merger, and there will be a series of super large companies in Europe in the future. Macron and other European leaders are also creating the phenomenon that European integration will bring strong industry and high employment rate.
