16 – 17 November 2023

The 5th EU-Korea Competition Week took place online on 16 and 17 November 2023. The initiative is the fifth 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 discussions focused on assessing tying arrangements in abuse of dominance cases and suitable remedies, as well as on best practices for antitrust proceedings and strengthening procedural fairness and transparency.

The Competition Week 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-Korea Competition Weeks take place annually, allowing officials from DG Competition and the KFTC to exchange experiences to enhance cooperation, transparency and convergence in the field of competition policy, to the benefit of citizens and businesses in both the EU and in Asia.
