Competition and Globalization in Developing Economies

Competition and Globalization in Developing Economies
NYU School of Law and Concurrences Review Conference
Friday, October 28, 2016

Abstract: Rapidly emerging economies such as South Africa, China, Argentina, Mexico and Turkey are taking center stage in antitrust enforcement.  Multinational firms must have regard to the competition systems of these and other developing nations and regions when in merging, collaborating with competitors, pricing, distributing, and licensing their intellectual property rights.  Competition authorities in countries at different stages of development are trying to meet the challenges posed by public and private power, cronyism and privilege; they are integrating with neighbors and trying to make their markets work for the good of their peoples. This program will address the effect of global forces on developing countries’ competition law systems and what this means in law, policy and practical reality for business, consumers, and the world.
