Our political leaders seem at a loss If we still had the ECSC Treaty today, under which production could be limited, would that have helped resolve part of the crisis?
In summary, between 1952 and 1967, all the ECSC countries' coal industries became more concentrated, and in Belgium and West Germany there was a shift to fewer firms of all sizes; as large firms became larger they were responsible for a greater share of the total coal production.
Specifically, we will enable many industries that rely on EO and PO, supplying 60,000 tonnes of EO and 20,000 tonnes of PO per year via pipeline to the PlasChem Park tenants, and we look forward to welcoming ECSC as the first tenant and the second in Jubail 2 after the Dow Reverse Osmosis Membrane project.

The ECJ considered that the Commission was right to base its decisions on the treaty setting up the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), which established a particular competition system for the steel sector and which expired on 23 July 2002.

To coincide with this year's celebration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), this work, edited by former European Commissioner Gunter Verheugen and the President of Austria's Federal Economic Chamber (WKO), Christoph Leitl, presents a collection of texts by European political leaders, including the two editors.
