Consolidation & Competition

Objectives versus realities in a converged environment. What's best for public interest?

This talk took place on Wednesday 8th October 2014 as part of the IIC Annual Conference in Vienna.

  • In what substantive ways does the enforcement of the competition / merger control rules differ region to region?
  • What are the key drivers of consolidation and what are the future trends?
  • What are the implications for the structure of the markets and for competition? What are the regulatory implications?
  • How do we move out of the impasse of discussing the same dichotomy of access vs. service competition?
  • How do we define markets and assess Significant Market Power in a world of convergence and bundled offerings?
