Over two years ago Christine Varney began her tenure as Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice. In this short period of time, under her leadership the Division has reinvigorated enforement against anticompetitive conduct and potentially problematic mergers. Moreover, the Division has worked closely with other arms of the Administration in addressing competitive problems in critical areas such as health care and agriculture. This approach to antitrust enforcement and engagement in competition issues across the government has contributed to the Administration's efforts to promote innovation, job growth through preservation of competitive forces in the market, and more efficient use of governmental coordination to spur economic growth.

 Ms. Varney will address the critical challenges facing the Division and Administration in addressing competition issues throughout the economy.
