16th EU-China Competition Week

The 16th EU-China Competition Week took place between 12th and 16th March 2018 in Beijing, China. The Competition Week gathered officials from the Chinese Anti-Monopoly Agencies (AMEAs) and the European Commission. These officials were joined by the President of the General Court of the European Union and a high level judge to initiate a dialogue with their counterparts in the Supreme People’s Court.

The week-long event covered a wide range of topics, including the application of competition law to big data and the sharing economy, merger review in the liner shipping industry, the revision of the anti-monopoly law, state aid control, exclusive distribution agreements, economic evidence before the court and resolving cases before the court. The roundtable discussions gave Chinese and European officials the opportunity to discuss their practical experience.

Competition Weeks take place biannually in March and October, when high level officials from the Ministry of Finance and Commerce (MOFCOM), the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) and the European Commission Directorate-General for Competition (DG Competition) engage in a dialogue on competition policy and competition law. The 16th EU-China Competition Week demonstrates continued dialogue and readiness to develop closer cooperation on the enforcement of the respective competition laws in the fields of antitrust, mergers and State aid enforcement.

The 17th EU-China Competition Week will take place from 15th to 18th October 2018.

  • The Competition Week supports the dialogue between the European Commission Directorate-General for Competition and China’s three AMEAs and aims to ensure consistent implementation in a robust enforcement environment.

  • China’s three Anti-Monopoly Enforcement Agencies include: the Ministry of Finance and Commerce (MOFCOM), the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC). In addition to this, a session with the Supreme People’s Court (SPC) is foreseen in the 16th Competition Week.

  • The Competition Cooperation Project’s official WeChat account will be launched shortly. Through this WeChat account, you will receive all information related to the project and the activity.
