Join us at the Chamber on the 2nd of March at 16:00 CET for an exciting online webinar on the "The implications of the Digital Markets Act: a European and international perspective" with MEP Andreas Schwab from the European Parliament, Ms Catherine Batchelor from the UK Competition and Markets Authority, Ms Griet Jans from the Belgian Competition Authority as well as Ms Fabienne Siredey-Garnie from the French Competition Authority.

As the EU institutions are busy finalising their negotiations on the Digital Markets Act (DMA), one of the French EU presidency’s main priorities, attentions are starting to turn to the implications of this new regulatory regime for competition policy and antitrust enforcement in the EU and around the globe.

With comparable frameworks already in place or underway in Germany, the UK and potentially in the US, are we moving to an international consensus on ex-ante regulation of large “gatekeeper” platforms? Which role, in this context, for national antitrust authorities and for “traditional” antitrust enforcement? Which platforms should be covered by such roles, and how to avoid alleged risks of “protectionist” biases?

These are some of the questions, alongside an update on the state of play of the DMA trilogues, that will be discussed.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting event!
