Evolving competition policy in challenging times
Amid the uncertainty of rapidly shifting politico-economic pressures, new legislation, initiatives and frameworks are driving the evolution of competition policy and enforcement approaches across the European Union (EU), UK, USA, and Asia.
The role of anti-trust regulators and competition authorities is simultaneously adapting to foster growth, innovation and resilience as the concept of free and fair market competition is being redefined.
In this context, this annual conference, hosted in-person and held under the Chatham House Rule, examines the emerging tension between convergent and divergent competition regulations as economic, technological and sustainability developments take shape.
- Understand the implication of recent legislative developments and foreign direct investment (FDI) regimes on global merger control trends
- Gain insight into the impact of digital economy regulation on technology investment and innovation
- Explore challenges and opportunities arising from competitor cooperation agreements and their potential anti-competitive market effects in relation to global security and sustainability goals
- Network in-person with international competition authorities and anti-trust regulators and engage on best practice relating to competition policy
