The digital economy continues to deliver huge opportunities for business and consumers, but challenges for authorities charged with promoting competitive markets and protecting consumers. Our panel of experts will discuss the implications of recent influential reports for all stakeholders active on digital markets and companies looking to digitise their businesses.
Merger control is also in the spotlight, as authorities test the impact of deals on potential competition and innovation in rapidly changing markets, and face political pressure from some quarters to take wider industrial policy consideration into account in their decision making. How will merger control adapt? Should we expect new rules and standards of review? And to what extent have authorities already changed their thresholds for intervention?
Looking ahead, we will discuss how global economic and political dynamics will shape antitrust policy in the next 10 years. How will governments and authorities respond to mounting pressure for new legislative tools and tougher enforcement, and how should businesses prepare?
