Frédéric Jenny moderated the discussion. He pointed out several issues that need to be addressed when looking at cross-border mergers in developing countries. The discussion will therefore particularly focus on three topics. First, cross-border mergers in developing countries are important, so there is a need to ensure that conditions are in place for effective merger control. Second, these cross-border mergers raise procedural issues, particularly because of the multiplicity of competition authorities in both developed and developing countries when they are involved in reviewing the same mergers. Finally, substantive issues relating to cross-border merger control in developing countries must also be addressed.
