BIAC Presents Business View to OECD Competition Authorities

Competition experts from the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) presented business views to the OECD and a number of non-OECD Member governments at the June session of the OECD Competition Committee and its working parties.

Addressing the revision of the 1995 OECD Recommendation of the Council Concerning Co-operation between Member Countries on Competition Investigations and Proceedings, BIAC emphasized continued concerns regarding the protection of confidential information in exchanges related to cross-border merger investigations.

BIAC also addressed Competition in Generic Pharmaceuticals, Airline Competition, competition and Public Private Partnerships (PPP), and competition aspects of the rollout of broadband networks. The OECD Competition Committee will next meet in December 2014. USCIB is BIAC’s American affiliate.
