EU-China Competition Week 13

The 13th EU-China Competition Week in Haikou, Hainan Province, was held from 24-27 October 2016. The sessions and discussions responded to the requests of the Chinese Anti-Monopoly Enforcement Agencies (AMEAs) and included priority themes such as mergers in online platforms and experiences with pre-merger notification consultations, as well as the assessment of market power in online platforms and analysing the pro- and anti-competitive effects of horizontal co-operation agreements. The discussions also provided both sides with an opportunity to examine recent competition enforcement and policy developments in the automotive sector, and to discuss experiences with competition assessments of laws and regulations in the context of the recent implementation of the Fair Competition Review System in China. The next Competition Week is tentatively scheduled for March 2017.
