7th Annual International Conference on Competition Law

  • 15 Oct, 2022
  • 09:00 AM - 04:00 PM

A robust antitrust and competition law enforcement has become a necessity for domestic as well as overseas enterprises who intend to invest in India. The new age, digital markets and e-commerce initiatives are revolutionizing the economies.  The innovations and technological disruptions have thrown up challenges and threats to the incumbent traditional segments of the Indian markets. Unfair business practices have prompted policymakers to consider and innovate newer policies to curb such practices harming other stakeholders. The impact and influence of such challenges e.g., are amongst others on scrutiny over mergers, data and privacy rights of businesses and consumers. Hence, an effective handling of antitrust litigation and regulatory processes have become perpetually crucial parts of business and regulatory ecosystems.

For global investors especially, in long-term investment decisions, competition laws with focus on maintaining competitive process and controlled interventions of regulators and enforcement agencies remain the preferred model. The latest development in Indian context for the ensuing conference, is the Competition (Amendment) Bill, 2022 which has been introduced in Lok Sabha on 5th August 2022. The Bill seeks to enhance the evolution of competition jurisprudence together with addressing the foregoing changes to the extent possible strengthen the Indian industry and enabling competitiveness across various business segments. Further, towards deliberating on various perspectives of competition law as well as creating public awareness and sensitizing the stakeholders in a co-evolving landscape across international jurisdictions, ASSOCHAM’s National Council for Competition Law contemplates to organize 7th Annual International Conference on “Competition Law – Recent Amendments, Challenges and The Way Forward” on Saturday, 15th October 2022 in New Delhi. 

The conference also sets out to highlight salient suggestions/proposals of the Amendment Bill and in the process try to cover the recommendation of a predictable and transparent merger control regime; the importance of antitrust compliance and an extremely tougher antitrust dispute resolution mechanism where the investigator, who hitherto was kept at arm’s length from the adjudicating authority, being proposed to act in unison with the adjudicating authority.
