10.1. Digital Economy – New Challenges, New Solutions

Thursday, May 16
10:00 - 13:00

Lecture hall, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

Technological development underlies economic growth and stimulates the development of innovations. At the same time, the digitalization of the global economy requires the transformation of antimonopoly regulation. The adaptation of regulatory approaches to new realities and the revision of competition policy in the context of its applicability to the reality of the digital economy are necessary.

Within the plenary session, participants will consider key issues related to the development of competition and the improvement of antimonopoly laws in the digital economy.
