SYNTHESIS

The moderator, Frédéric Jenny (OECD Competition Committee), began the discussion by introducing the panelists and giving an overview of the debate around some of the current issues on enforcing competition law in the United States and the European Union. First, he pointed to the question of whether enforcers should regulate the behavior of gatekeepers ex ante or ex post merger, and if so, what kind of enforcement would be useful.
