BRICS Competition Conference on International Cooperation and Competition Policy
09 - 10 November 2017
Royal Tulip Hotel
Brasilia, Brazil

Key Issues

​Starting out in 2009 with a focus on challenges of competition policy development in BRICS countries the BRICS International Competition Conference has evolved over the years to be a major opportunity for policy debates on competition policy within the developing and emerging economy context.

The BRICS Competition Conference organizers have invited UNCTAD to speak on two issues: International Cooperation and Competition Policy and Competition in the Digital era. The first presentation will be focused on the work of UNCTAD in promoting international cooperation for agencies of developing countries and economies in transition as well as the main challenges that younger and smaller competition agencies face when engaging in international cooperation schemes. The second presentation will be addressing the challenges faced by younger and smaller competition agencies when dealing with cross-border collusion in the digital era.

Both UNCTAD and BRICS can play a pivotal role in promoting international cooperation vis-a-vis younger/smaller agencies in their respective regions and work together in multilateral platforms at the global level, including the key provisions of the UN Set on Competition regarding international measures.
 
UNCTAD and CADE will meet to discuss Brazilian contribution to UNCTAD technical assistance initiatives towards competition agencies in the Latin-American region.
