Organizers

This year’s Developing Countries’ conference will be presented in three webinars. The remote format has allowed us to bring together more developing country enforcers, this year not only from South Africa but also from Nigeria and the common market COMESA. Distinguished panelists from around the world will discuss developing countries’ reception of the biggest competition issues of the year. Webinar One focuses on mergers: cross-border challenges and the role of public interests and industrial policy. Webinar Two is devoted to big data and platforms: opportunities and challenges for developing countries. Webinar Three will address new issues of dominance and collaborations: how developing countries are dealing with price gouging and opportunism in the pandemic, and how they are incorporating industrial policy and principles of access and inclusiveness. Receptions will follow Webinars One and Three.

This is the 7th Annual Antitrust in Emerging Countries Conference, co-organized by Concurrences and NYU School of Law, in partnership with the sponsors. Due to the current health situation, this conference will be held via a series of 3 webinars from October 27th to October 30th.
