The OECD Meeting of High-Level Representatives of Asia-Pacific Competition Authorities is a unique annual gathering of the heads and senior representatives of competition agencies throughout Asia-Pacific that aims to further the exchange of knowledge, experience and expertise at the highest levels of antitrust regulation and enforcement.
The summit offers senior regulators the opportunity to share and develop their practice and application of competition law and policy, and to generate fresh ways of thinking about existing and novel challenges that face the regulatory community in the Asia-Pacific region, with the support of the OECD.
2021 MEETING DISCUSSES COMPETITION IN A TIME OF CRISIS
13 December 2021 - The 6th edition of this meeting focused on "Competition in a time of crisis: Policy, the pandemic and the path ahead" and included a session on "Industrial Policy or Competition in Times of COVID-19".
The meeting also provided an opportunity to launch and discuss OECD Asia-Pacific Competition Law Enforcement Trends, the first OECD report on enforcement trends in the region.
Previous editions have discussed topics such as Prioritisation, Competitive Neutrality, Competition issues in Digital Markets and Competition Reactions to the Covid-19.
The meeting of High-Level Representatives of Asia-Pacific Competition Authorities has been held in a virtual format since 2020, but is expected to transition into a face-to-face event in the coming years as the most important regional summit dedicated to competition issues, drawing the most senior and influential competition enforcement officials in Asia-Pacific.
