Commissioner Vestager: "one of the biggest threats to fair competition is when multinationals don't pay their fair share of tax".

To help Member States to comply with the rules, she said, "we've given guidance in our Notice on the Notion of Aid and, today, in a dedicated working paper." To avoid harming competition, "governments should treat multinationals in the same way as companies that operate individually." In the context of better implementation of State Aid Modernisation, the Commission has offered the possibility for Member States to enter into strengthened bilateral partnerships to improve management of state aid. One such partnership with Italy was agreed today by Commissioner Vestager and Italian State Secretary for European Affairs Sandro Gozi. This follows agreement with Bulgaria in April. Constructive work is also advancing to strengthen a partnership with Romania.
