Competition issues in trade agreements: how is it working and where can it go?
Monday 9 October (0930 - 1045)
International Trade and Customs Law Committee
Even though some recent developments, such as the Trump presidency in the US, have challenged the way trade policies will develop around the world, regional and bilateral trade agreements have been on the rise globally in the past few years and have included competition almost as a mandatory feature. This panel will explore the different approaches and levels of ambition of competition clauses adopted by recent trade agreements and discuss their effectiveness, trends and practical implications for competition and trade law practitioners.
