Trade, development and competition
6 December 2021 | 12.00-15.00 CET Zoom
THE 2021 OECD GLOBAL FORUM ON COMPETITION WILL DISCUSS TRADE, DEVELOPMENT AND COMPETITION
Competition can be a powerful force for economic development, growth and productivity. Both competition policy and trade policy can play a role in harnessing competition for these purposes, but the interaction between the two is not often considered. This may change in the years ahead, as policymakers consider how to promote development through competition in a world characterised by different economic and trading systems, as well as growing recognition of the need for a level international playing field.
In December 2021, the 20th edition of the Global Forum on Competition tried to make the link between these two policy areas, and explored where there are tensions and common ground. Some key questions that were covered included:
The session was be led by a panel of experts from both policy areas to debate these questions, and discuss with delegates in an interactive Q&A format.
