2018 Global Forum on Competition

2017 OECD Global Forum on Competition

 29-30 November 2018  OECD, Paris

The Global Forum brings together high-level competition officials from over 100 authorities and organisations worldwide to debate a wide range of key and emerging competition issues including the link between competition policy and other cornerstones of economic development.  The 2018 edition will focus on:

competition and fairer societies




regional competition agreements


investigative powers


state-owned enterprises


Over 100 competition authorities, international organisations and invited experts worldwide participate in the Global Forum every year. Participation is by invitation only and restricted to officials from competition authorities, government agencies and international/ regional organisations. 

Like other OECD activities, through the Business and Advisory Committee to the OECD (BIAC), the Trade Union Advisory Committee (TUAC) representatives of the business community and trade movements can contribute to the discussions. The Global Forum  also welcomes the participation of Consumers International each year, an important voice for consumers particularly in developing countries.

Invitation letters should be soon sent to agencies and organisations. For more questions do not hesitate to contact angelique.servin@oecd.org.
