Industrial Policy and Competition Enforcement
When: Thursday, February 25, 2021, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
This event is co-organised with the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL).
In March 2020, the Commission presented a new strategy to help Europe's industry lead. The strategy aims to drive Europe's competitiveness and its strategic autonomy at a time of moving geopolitical plates and increasing global competition.
There have been calls for a European industrial policy that will strengthen the position of European companies in the global sphere and at the same time there are advocates of a more protectionist approach in the application of competition rules.
The panel will discuss the importance of industrial policy for competition enforcement in the EU and the UK.
