OECD’s Competition Committee meeting next week in Paris - Feb 13-15, 2012

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

OECD’s Competition Committee meeting next week in Paris

The OECD’s Competition Committee will be in session next week, from Monday February 13th to Wednesday 15th, when delegates from the 34 member economies plus observers will gather to discuss topics in competition law and policy. These roundtable sessions are not open to the public, but the OECD has published drafts of some of the expert papers as work in progress (links below).

The three topics being discussed by the Committee and its working parties are:

Competition in Hospital Services

· Competition in Hospital Services - OECD background paper by Frank Maier-Rigaud

· Reform, Competition, and Policy in Hospital Markets - Paper by Mr. Martin Gaynor

· The Very English Experience with Competition: Lessons from Britain's National Health Service - Paper by Mr. Zack Cooper

Unilateral Disclosure of Information with Anticompetitive Effects (e.g. through Press Announcements)

· Unilateral Disclosure of Information with Anticompetitive Effects (e.g. through Press Announcements) - OECD background paper by Antonio Capobianco

The Digital Economy (Discussion continued from October 2011)

· Oversight of Innovation Catalysts - Paper by Tim Wu

Contact names and email addresses for each of these topics, and papers from earlier meetings (including previous papers on the continued digital economy session), are available on the OECD’s “Work in Progress” web page, at http://www.oecd.org/document/43/0,3746,en_2649_37463_48742443_1_1_1_37463,00.html

Full compilations of all the materials discussed in these meetings, together with contributions by participating countries and a summary of the discussion, will be published by the OECD on its web site later this year at www.oecd.org/competition/roundtables

The Committee will also be considering its plans for work over the next two years, focused around the two themes of “International co-operation in competition enforcement” and “Evaluating the impact of competition interventions”.

Following the Committee meeting, on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th February, the OECD will be holding its 11th annual Global Forum on Competition, details of which will be provided in a later post.
