EEC and European Commission discussed cooperation on competition policy

EEC and European Commission discussed cooperation on competition policy

3/18/2021

The first meeting of representatives of the Eurasian Economic Commission's Competition and Antitrust Regulation Unit and the European Commission's Competition Directorate took place in online environments.


The sides discussed issues of competition policy and antitrust regulation in the European and Eurasian regions as well as exchanged information on the latest law enforcement practices, including issues of conducting investigations in the digital sphere. 

Following the meeting, its attendees agreed to hold regular consultations in May-June this year. It is envisaged to discuss prospects for further cooperation between the EEC Competition Unit and the European Commission's Competition Directorate, which is of mutual interest.

Negotiations with the EC on such a meeting and on establishing cooperation in the field of competition in general began last year. As a result, the European Commission's Competition Directorate confirmed its interest in a dialogue with the EEC. The video format was chosen due to the need to comply with quarantine measures.​
