    Overview

    Our Competition Committee informs OECD discussions on competition. It encourages senior regulators and antitrust enforcers to act consistently and proportionately in accordance with due process, best practice, and with respect to the objectives of effective enforcement of competition laws. Its primary objective is maintenance of business competitiveness and the efficient operation of markets with the minimum necessary level of regulatory intervention across all sectors.
