PANEL DISCUSSION

Frédéric Jenny moderated the discussion. This panel will focus on the interaction between antitrust and trade relations in the world. In this context, in 1996, the Singapore Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organization (WTO) set up a Working Party on the interaction between trade and competition policy. The main objective in setting up this group was “to study issues raised by Members relating to the interaction between trade and competition policy, including anti-competitive practices, to identify any areas that may merit further considera¬tion in the WTO framework.” Thus, the first part of the panel will focus on the main changes since the end of the working group in competition, trade, and the interface between the two.
