✔️ Session on the topic “Current Problems of Competition Development in the Eurasian Region. The Role of the State in the Economy”
Optimization of State Participation in the Economy is one of the important directions of competition development in the CIS and Eurasian Economic Union. Is it timely, given the geopolitical situation, to reduce state participation and the limits of this reduction? What measures to denationalize the economy and create a level playing field for all market players are the most effective in different countries? What role is assigned to antimonopoly authorities in the process of denationalization of the economy? The tasks of de-monopolization as well as improvement of competition law and modern trends in competition protection were discussed by the heads of antimonopoly regulators of Eurasian countries, experts, and businessmen.
