2-4 May 2018 Seoul, Korea
The OECD/Korea Policy Centre Competition Programme together with the International Competition Network are organising a workshop for Senior and Chief Economists in Seoul on 2-4 May 2018 to present ongoing issues on competition economics.
The programme aims at providing senior and chief economists of competition agencies worldwide with insights from the academia on key competition economic principles while providing an opportunity for sharing experiences.
Participants will be divided in two tracks:
A session on sharing experiences of how to organise economists in an agency will be moderated by the OECD.
Each session will be composed of a introduction by a leading academic and will be followed by case studies from participating agencies, allowing for interactive working sessions.
The workshop will feature international academics, experts and practitionners including:
The OECD Korea Policy Centre’s Competition Programme has been organising capacity building events for Asian-Pacific Competition authorities since 2004. As economics has become more and more important in competition enforcement cases across the globe, the OECD/KPC has teamed up with with the ICN Agency Effectiveness Working Group, to organise a workshop looking in depth at some fundamental economic topics. The ICN had already organised a similar workshop in 2016 introducing topics such as merger remedies and vertical restraints in digital markets which triggered great interest from participants (read the event’s report).
