The European Commission is currently engaged in a major overhaul of its competition rules. Competition is an essential driver of ensuring a properly-working Single Market and competitiveness, delivering benefit to consumers in terms of better prices, wider choice and innovation.
Join us for a discussion with DG Competition’s Director General Olivier Guersent on the current review process, the need for rules to adapt to the new conditions in the digital and sustainability transformation of Europe’s economy, and support the recovery process towards greater competitiveness. The webinar will also cover the issue of payments as a major competition issue in the digital environment.
