Financial grant

On 18 December 2012, the European Commission granted investment aid to the General Motors Manufacturing Poland Sp. z o.o. The aid worth EUR 14.54 million (PLN 60.92 million) was used to start a new production line at the Gliwice factory in the Slaskie region for the fourth-generation Astra models in the years 2012-2013. The goods produced in this factory are potentially tradeable internationally.
 
The beneficiary company belongs to the Opel/Vauxhaull corporation, which in turn is part of the General Motors Group. The factory in Gliwice produces multiple Opel models but it specializes in the Astra series.
 
Most of the aid originated from EU's Operational Fund Innovative Economy and amounted to EUR 12.36 million, whereas the remaining 2.18 million were financed by Poland. The decision by the Polish government to grant the aid was taken on 1 December 2012 and the project was due on 31 December 2013.
 
A state measure in the GTA database is assessed solely in terms of the extent to which its implementation affects the extent of discrimination against foreign commercial interests. On this metric, the state aid proposed here is discriminatory.
