The Justice Department’s Antitrust Division Attends Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Meetings

A delegation from the U.S. DOJ Antitrust Division, including Deputy Assistant Attorney General Roger Alford, is attending meetings of the OECD Competition Committee in Paris this week. 

The OECD Competition Committee, which includes 35 member countries and the European Union, as well as non-member participants, experts and other invitees, brings together leaders of the world’s major competition authorities for a dialogue on competition policy issues, including best practices and standards, and promotes market-oriented reforms. 

Among the panels scheduled for this week’s meeting are the extraterritorial reach of remedies in antitrust cases, the role of safe harbors and presumptions in antitrust law, and emerging issues related to common ownership by institutional investors.  The U.S. submissions on these topics, as well as the submissions by other OECD members, are available on the OECD Competition Committee’s website at http://www.oecd.org/daf/competition/roundtables.htm.
