OECD/Korea Policy Centre, Competition Programme

 

‌The OECD/Korea Policy Centre (Competition Programme) is a joint venture between the Korean government and the OECD. Opened in May 2004, the Centre works with competition authorities in the Asian region to develop and implement effective competition law and policy. The Centre provides a hub for competition officials from Asian countries to meet regularly to exchange experiences and deepen their capacities in competition law and policy through workshops, seminars and other events. A workshop where judges may share experiences in the competition law field and benefit from discussions with world class experts from several jurisdictions is organised once a year. The Centre also works to strengthen competition law and policy in Korea and the KFTC itself.

Topics of discussion

Capacity building is achieved through practical hands on training involving computer simulations, document analysis, and case studies. Participants learn up-to-date enforcement practices and the modern economic thinking that lies behind a variety of antitrust enforcement concerns.  Recent and upcoming activities have focused on antitrust market definition and competitive effects analysis, anti-cartel enforcement practices, vertical integration, exclusive dealing, tying, bundling, other miscellaneous vertical practices, price discrimination, obtaining and analysing economic evidence that can support or refute the authority's antitrust concern, legal reform, guidelines, and the practices and procedures of an authority.

Participating economies

The following economies are frequent participants in the Centre's activities: Cambodia, Hong Kong (China), India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Pakistan, People's Republic of China, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Thailand and Vietnam. Fiji, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka have also participated in past activities.
