The Institute to Discuss Approaches to Antitrust Regulation for BRICS

The HSE-Skolkovo Institute for Law and Development is organising the BRICS Competition Law and Policy Workshop. This key event for the international legal community specialising in the field of competition law will be held in St. Petersburg, June 22-23.

The June 22 Round Table at the Yeltsin Presidential Library will bring together representatives of competition authorities of the BRICS countries led by the head of the Federal Antimonopoly service of Russia, Igor Artemyev, key international experts in the antitrust sphere, the curators of the specialised areas at the Organisation for economic cooperation and development (OECD) and the Eurasian Economic Commission.
 
In anticipation of the November 4th BRICS Conference for competition officials and scholars will discuss the draft joint convention on combating international cartels and general approaches to competition policy in the pharmaceutical and food markets. On this basis the HSE-Skolkovo Institute of Law and Development is planning to launch for BRICS countries a platform for the exchange of information and expert support for the coordination of approaches in antitrust regulation. In St. Petersburg the basic principles of this porject will be decided, which will be implemented in the planned signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in the sphere of cooperation of BRICS countries' competition authorities.
 
On the second day of the conference we will host a research seminar on the global spread (diffusion) of competition law and deliver the report from one of the Institute's most comprehensive research projects: the food markets in the BRICS countries.
