EU and China to discuss competition policy priorities during 24th Competition Week

Officials and experts from the EU and China will meet online from 12 to 16 December 2022 to discuss their cooperation on competition law and enforcement.

The discussions will focus on competition policy and legislative developments in the EU and China, enforcement of competition law in both sides, standardisation and innovation as well as novelties in the merger control assessment. Participants will also discuss the latest policy developments in EU State aid policy as well as the implementation of the Fair Competition Review System in China. In addition, Chinese officials will receive an introduction to EU competition law.

The EU-China Competition Week takes place biannually, providing a platform for exchanges on competition policy between the European Commission Directorate-General for Competition and the Chinese State Administration for Market Regulation.

The meeting is part of the Competition Cooperation project, a 5-year EU funded programme offering technical cooperation to competition authorities in Asia. The objective is to share experiences and strengthen convergence in competition policy, to the benefit of citizens and businesses in both the EU and in Asia.

More information about the European Commission’ bilateral dialogue with China in the field of competition policy is available on the Commission’s website.
