SYNTHÈSE

Discussion d’ouverture

Nicolas Petit introduced the discussions of the first segment of the conference, noting that Daniel Fasquelle and Valéria Faure-Muntian co-authored a parliamentary report on digital platforms submitted to the French National Assembly on 24 June 2020. Since then, the debate on the regulation of digital platforms has continued and the European Commission has put forward a proposal for a Digital Markets Act. Prof. Petit presented the panellists. He invited Mr. Fasquelle and Ms. Faure-Muntian to present the measures proposed through the report that the DMA incorporates, as well as the measures that they wished to find in the DMA but which were excluded. As a conclusion, he stressed that it remains to be seen -as we are dealing with geopolitical matters relating to the U.S. philosophy of supermarkets and Chinese techno-nationalism- what policy the Europe Union will embrace to address the challenges of the digital economy. Competition law is a tool, but we also need to attract talent, to educate people, and to join other policies to the action plan, such as tax policies.
