EU-China Competition Week 12

The 12th EU-China Competition Week in Beijing was held from 14-18 March 2016. The individual sessions addressed the specific requests of the Chinese Anti-Monopoly Enforcement Agencies (AMEAs) and included priority themes such as mergers in high-tech industries including big data issues, as well as quantification of harm and parental liability for anti-monopoly infringements. The week also provided both sides with the opportunity to discuss draft guidelines on leniency applications, commitments, and procedural rules for exemption applications for anti-competitive agreements. While this was the last competition week under the EUCTP II, the competition week model will be continued beyond the lifespan of the EUCTP II, with the next week tentatively scheduled for in October 2016.
