Luxembourg Comments on Commission's Opening Decision in ENGIE Case

The European Commission has published its opening State aid decision against Luxembourg in the ENGIE case.

Following its decision, on 19 September 2016, to open a State aid procedure against Luxembourg in the ENGIE case, the European Commission has published its opening decision.

The publication of the opening decision is a formal step in the procedure.

Meanwhile, Luxembourg has submitted the requested information to the Commission and is fully cooperative in the investigation.

The Grand Duchy retains that it is confident that the allegations of State aid are unsubstantiated and aims to prove to the Commission that there has been no particular special tax treatment given to ENGIE companies in Luxembourg.
