3rd EU-Japan Competition Week


The 3rd EU-Japan Competition Week took place online from 16 to 18 November 2022. Officials and experts from the EU and Japan met to discuss and exchange good practices in competition policy and enforcement. The closed-door sessions focused on approaches to competition enforcement, efforts towards sustainability goals, the use of remedies in prohibition decisions, and the investigation of mergers in digital markets. Recent developments in the regulation of digital markets were also discussed.

The exchanges allowed both sides to address the priorities and challenges in their competition policy and enforcement and to engage in constructive technical and practical exchanges.

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