3 June 2019 OECD Conference Centre, Paris
While the advent of the digital economy has generated new opportunities around the globe, it has also given rise to certain challenges for policymakers. One such challenge is developing the right approach to promoting and protecting competition in digital markets, which has been identified as a priority for the 2019 G7 French Presidency.
With a view to informing the G7 Finance Ministers’ discussions on these issues, this event promoted an exchange of views and experience between policy makers, academics and competition authorities. To support the G7’s discussions, the Autorité de la concurrence, the OECD, Banque de France and the French Ministry of Economy and Finance organised a high-level Conference on Competition and the Digital Economy.
Enquiries relating to this event can be addressed to Angelique Servin.
