The European Union and the People's Republic of China have been cooperating in the field of competition law and policy for more than a decade. The cooperation efforts undertaken by both the EU and China have given rise to many key achievements, fostered vital relationship-building and featured collaborations that may not be very well known to those outside the parties themselves. With the fifth anniversary of the Chinese Anti-Monopoly Law (AML) now behind us, cooperation on competition matters between these two major world powers and trading partners is more important than ever. But what has the cooperation involved? How does it work in practice? Are there differences in substantive law and procedure that may affect cooperation? What has each side learned from the other? And importantly, what's next on the cooperation agenda? The VUB is pleased to present this unique panel of speakers that will seek to tackle these questions and provide practical answers and examples to help inform those interested in EU/China relations in the competition field.
