Arman Shakkaliev: "Public information office should work on an "open door" principle"

12/22/2020

The public information office of the Competition Unit of the Eurasian Economic Commission becomes an open venue for discussing regulatory initiatives aimed at compliance with the rules of bona fide competition in the Eurasian Economic Union’s transboundary markets.

On December 21, the "new" reception office gathered representatives of the legal community, business, chambers of commerce and industry, industry regulators and competition authorities of the EAEU States.

Opening the event in a video format, Arman Shakkaliev, EEC Minister in charge of Competition and Antitrust Regulation, has outlined the prospects for developing competition regulation in the Union which will be focused on consumers, business of the Union countries, work with competition authorities as well as active involvement of the EEC in the global agenda.

Attendees of the public information office have pitched some ideas on developing antitrust regulation in digital markets, introducing antitrust compliance, getting the prices right for roaming in the EAEU States as well developing fair practices for distribution networks.

The experts have supported the Commission's initiatives to introduce antitrust compliance into the Union’s law and develop recommendations on competitive (antitrust) regulation in digital markets.

Questions from the business community and other broadcast listeners were answered in the comments feed on the Commission's YouTube channel. The Head of the EEC’s Competition Unit has noted that the public information office in the new format should work on the "open door" principle. For this purpose, according to Arman Shakkaliev, a separate window will be created on the webpage of the Competition Unit on the Commission’s website, which will contain recordings of meetings, questions and answers, discussions and documents being developed.​
