State Aid and Supply Chain Investment

Jay Mehta

This article seeks to examine the effectiveness of the current State aid rules in facilitating the development and incentivisation of supply chains through State support, while at the same time proposing how they might be improved or supplemented. In particular, the focus is on how the existing block exemptions, frameworks and case law can be applied within the context of a collaborative industrial supply chain structure and whether any effective changes are needed at a conceptual or practical level.
