Ken Davidson of the American Antitrust Institute has posted his thoughts on the DOJ/FTC technical assistance workshop in which I participated in two weeks ago. His piece is titled Wither American Assistance to Competition Agencies: An FTC-DOJ Workshop.
ABSTRACT: This Commentary presents the author’s perspectives on a Workshop sponsored on February 6, 2008 by the US Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice entitled, “Charting the Future Course of International Technical Assistance at the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice. The Workshop had 33 participants who represented the two authorities, the European Union, the World Bank and other international agencies, recipients of technical assistance, academics and other staff of nonprofit and governmental institutions, and representatives of private business. This was the first such conference since the American technical assistance program was launched in the early 1990s.
