Read more together to examine recent merger cases and questions arising from their outcomes, the limits of competition law enforcement and the effects of broader policy objectives on investigations as well as the impact of politics and the global pandemic on the long-term competition landscape. Keynotes from Director-General Olivier Guersent and Chief Economist Pierre Regibeau offer delegates the opportunity to hear directly from these leaders about their recent work, thoughts on the future and the realities affecting competition law and enforcement in 2020.

And what should the right balance be between meeting these objectives by modifying competition law processes, though the use of ex ante regulation or new tools?.
