Bringing greater cooperation and convergence to international antitrust enforcement is a top priority of the Antitrust Division.

Effective enforcement of U.S. antitrust laws in a global economy requires cooperation with competition agencies outside the U.S. The Division works closely with its counterparts in other jurisdictions on international cartel, merger, and civil non-merger enforcement matters that affect U.S. consumers.

The Division promotes international competition policy cooperation and convergence by maintaining strong bilateral relationships with enforcement agencies in other jurisdictions and through participation in international organizations such as the Competition Committee of the OECD and the International Competition Network.

The Antitrust Division’s international initiatives aim to bring greater cooperation and convergence to international antitrust enforcement in the years ahead by facilitating international discussion of important issues, building bilateral and multilateral relationships, and learning how best to coordinate investigations and remedies.
