EU-China Competition Week 10

The 10th EU-China Competition Week was held in Beijing from 16-19 March 2015. Around 200 enforcement officials from both central and provincial enforcement bureaus participated in the week-long training. The individual sessions aimed to address the specific needs and priorities of the Chinese competition authorities in the further development and enforcement of the AML. The topics covered included the concept of control in merger transactions, evidentiary issues in exclusionary abuse of dominance cases, the balance between competition and the protection of IPR, as well as fines calculation and procedural fairness. A novelty was the inclusion of a representative of the EU’s General Court, contributing to a better understanding of the role of the judiciary in developing the EU’s competition law and practise.
