16-17 November 2020

The 2nd EU-Korea Competition Week took place online on 16 and 17 November 2020.  Officials and experts from the EU and Korea met to discuss and exchange good practices in competition policy and enforcement. The initiative is the second in a series of annual dialogues providing a platform for cooperation and frank exchanges between the European Commission Directorate-General for Competition (DG Competition), the EU Member States National Competition Authorities and the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC).

The Competition Week opened on 16 November with a session on the future of regulation and competition enforcement in digital markets in the EU and in Korea. The second day focused on the economic tools for assessing competition in digital markets, to ensure that the digital economy benefits consumers and the broader business environment.

EU-Korea Competition Weeks will take place annually, allowing officials from DG Competition and the KFTC to engage in a dialogue to enhance cooperation and transparency in the field of competition.
