Officials and experts from the EU and China will meet online from 29 November to 2 December 2021 to discuss about their cooperation on competition law and enforcement. The discussions will focus on the green transition and how China’s Fair Competition Review System and the EU’s State Aid framework can contribute to it.

Participants will also discuss mechanisms to control potentially anti-competitive acquisitions in the digital sector and the practical challenges of investigating digital markets. In addition, there will be updates on the proposed revisions to China’s Anti-Monopoly Law and recent regulatory and competition policy developments in the EU. The 22nd EU-China Competition Week follows the longstanding tradition of biannual competition dialogue between the EU and the anti-monopoly enforcement agencies in China.

It is part of the Competition Cooperation project, a 5-year EU funded programme offering technical cooperation to competition authorities in Asia. It also provides a platform for exchanges on competition policy between the European Commission Directorate-General for Competition (DG Competition) and the Chinese State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR).

The objective is to exchange experiences and strengthen convergence in competition policy, to the benefit of citizens and businesses in both the EU and in Asia. More information about the European Commission’ bilateral dialogue with China in the field of competition policy is available on the Commission’s website.
