Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Traian Băsescu (PPE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: COVID-19 and state aid

In response to the economic crisis generated by the COVID-19 outbreak, most Member States have announced state aid schemes designed to keep their markets afloat and shore up certain industries. While a number of Member States have channelled substantial funding into various schemes of this nature, others, such as Romania, which lack the necessary resources, have been forced to follow suit on a more modest scale. Germany accounts for around half of the total State aid approved by the EU executive to deal with the COVID fallout, followed by France and Italy. These substantial disparities are effectively distorting competition, fragmenting the internal market and slowing down economic recovery in countries with fewer resources. 

In view of this:

What specific compensatory and/or corrective measures will the Commission take within its terms of reference as established by the EU Treaties to ensure that these major state aid disparities do not affect competition and internal market cohesion?
