About the Forum
Established in 2001, the OECD Global Forum on Competition brings together each year high-level officials from more than 100 competition authorities worldwide, including both OECD and non-OECD economies. Joining with representatives of international organisations and invited experts, participants debate and discuss key topics on the global competition agenda. With a broad focus on development, the Forum promotes a wider dialogue that encompasses the linkages between competition policy and other cornerstones of economic development.
The programme includes OECD-style roundtable discussions, presentations from notable experts as well as peer reviews. Discussion topics benefit from the input of the Competition Committee whose work has already generated substantial results in many countries and economies, such as the voluntary adoption of ‘best practices’, substantial analytical convergence, the establishment of strong networks of enforcement authorities, and enhanced co-operation.
