Officials and experts from the EU and Korea will meet again this year, online between 15 and 17 November 2021 to discuss and exchange good practices in competition policy and enforcement during the third EU-Korea Competition Week. Representatives from the European Commission, the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC), the Korean Ministry of Trade and Industry and Energy (MOTIE) will gather to discuss a wide range of topics, including developments in the regulation of digital markets, criteria for determining abuse in dominance cases as well as State aid control. The Competition Week will open on 15 November with a session on competition and digital markets and the evolving regulatory and enforcement landscape. The focus of the second day will be on the economic analysis in abuse of dominance cases, and the third day will be devoted to State aid and subsidy control. The annual EU-Korea Competition Week is part of the Competition Cooperation project, a 5-year EU-funded programme offering technical cooperation to competition authorities in Asia. The objective is to exchange experiences and strengthen convergence in competition policy, to the benefit of citizens and businesses in both the EU and Asia.
