EC import threat

THE EUROPEAN Commission is threatening legal action against France, Poland and Austria for allegedly breaking European Union (EU) freedom of trade laws by impeding the import of cars into their territories.

In France, Commission pressure has eased administrative procedures, ‘however more changes are needed’ it said.
