Trade and antitrust: will trade wars make antitrust law great again?
Thursday 6 June (1430 - 1600)
Asia Pacific Regional Forum
Recent trade wars and protectionism are changing the antitrust landscape. Critics argue that governments can increasingly take advantage of antitrust law to protect domestic industry from foreign investments, create national champions, protect interests such as privacy and the environment, employment and regional development. Is antitrust law becoming a more political tool? This panel will discuss whether antitrust law can take into account non-competition elements, such as public interest and national security, not only in the context of merger review but also other aspects of antitrust enforcement, including the relationship with intellectual property and Big Data.
