Competition: EU and Korea reinforce cooperation on competition policy at second EU-Korea Competition Week

Officials and experts from the EU and Korea will meet online on 16 and 17 November 2020 to discuss and exchange good practices in competition policy and enforcement during the second EU-Korea Competition Week. Representatives from the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) and the European Commission will gather to discuss the challenges of digitalisation, as well as how to ensure that the digital economy benefits consumers and the broader business environment. The Competition Week will open on 16 November with a session on the future of regulation and competition law enforcement in digital markets in the EU and in Korea. The second day will focus on the economic tools for assessing competition in digital markets. The annual EU-Korea Competition Week is part of the Competition Cooperation project, a 5-year EU-funded programme offering technical cooperation to competition authorities in Asia. The objective of the programme, which under the Partnership Instrument, is to exchange experiences and strengthen convergence in competition policy, to the benefit of citizens and businesses in both the EU and Asia. More information about the European Commission’s bilateral dialogue with Korea in the field of competition policy is available on the Commission’s website
