  • Ovidiu-Horia MAICAN

    () (Bucharest Universiy of Economic Studies, Law Department)


The granting of state aids (grants) is one of the most powerful economic policy instruments available to public authorities. Through these grants are protected certain economic activities. Although state aids are based on social motivations, they are actions that can have harmful effects on competition. State aids granted by the Member States through the use of public funds (funds), prolonging or threatening to distort competition.
