*This article is an automatic translation of the original article, provided here for your convenience. Read the original article. On March 15, 2022, the Commission made public the decision of July 28, 2021 by which it approved, subject to conditions, the acquisition of Telekom Romania, the former Romanian incumbent operator, by Orange. The present operation represents the combination of two very complementary operators on the Romanian telecom market. Orange is mainly present, through its subsidiaries, on the mobile telecommunications market, while the target - TKR - is mainly present on the fixed telecommunications and television market. The combination of these two complementary operators, who are not close competitors (pt. 307), does not in itself pose a competition problem.
