Conference on Trade and Competition Policies: Exploring the Ways Forward
In the run-up to the November 1999 WTO Ministerial in Seattle, Washington, the OECD hosted a conference on trade and competition policies to explore the various options towards better coherence between trade and competition policies. At this conference, held on 29-30 June 1999, experts from nearly 60 countries, including government officials, academics and representatives of business, trade unions and advocacy groups, debated ways to strengthen trade and competition policies in the interest of more open global markets. They examined the effects of trade measures on competition. They also debated whether private anticompetitive practices, and certain domestic regulations, point to the need for multilateral trade and competition rules. Below is a summary of the discussion at the conference together with an issues paper by the OECD Secretariat.
