Description

The “Workshop on Recent Challenges to Merger Control and Anticompetitive Conducts Proceedings in order to Protect the Competition Process” was co-sponsored by Canada; Mexico; Papua New Guinea; Singapore and Viet Nam; and organized in two working days. The first day, we had the pleasure of having the participations of important speakers who shared with us their valuable experience about the measures imposed in anticompetitive procedures; and the importance to underline the criteria of applying corrective remedies and cases developed by the agencies.

Regarding the second day of this workshop, it was very enlightening to listen about the main challenges and elements to consider when applying structural remedies, behavioral remedies or a combination of both. In addition, we discussed specific cases that enriched the conversation as well as our perspective on the application of merger remedies. To sum up, this workshop was a great step in contributing on capacity building to the APEC economies, not only for providing better tools to the agencies to face anticompetitive conducts, but also for establishing new cooperation links between agencies to protect the competition process in our economies.
