OECD/Korea Policy Centre, Competition Programme


The OECD/Korea Policy Centre Competition Programme is a joint venture between the Korean government and the OECD. Opened in May 2004, the Centre works with competition authorities in the Asia-Pacific region to develop and implement effective competition law and policy. The Centre provides a hub for competition officials from Asia-Pacific countries to meet regularly to exchange experiences and deepen their capacities in competition law and policy through workshops, seminars and other events. A workshop where judges may share experiences in the competition law field and benefit from discussions with world class experts from several jurisdictions is organised once a year. The Centre also works to strengthen competition law and policy in Korea and the KFTC itself.
