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).
