24 May, 16:45–18:00
Harnessing Russia’s Growth Potential
Panel Session
Congress Centre, Conference Hall B2

The digital economy is presenting new challenges to antitrust authorities across the globe. Most of the world’s competition authorities are now faced with the need to re-evaluate their approach to the markets of the new economy as digital giants aggregate enormous pools of data. How can the market situation be assessed, what approaches and mechanisms can be used in this dynamic environment, and most importantly, how is competition itself being transformed? How is industry reacting to the new trends, and how can a new equilibrium be achieved between innovation in industry and antitrust control?
