Opening key-note speech

Opening key-note speech

Every year we invite a speaker who has distinguished in the field of Competition law and economics to deliver an opening speech.

The aim of the opening speech is to inspire our participants and to foster the debate and discussion throughout the whole week … and more.

In 2020 the opening speech will be delivered by the Judge of the EU General Court Mr. Ian Stewart Forrester.

In the recent past, our key-note speakers have been:

2019 Prof. Francisco Marcos, Instituto de Empresa, Madrid (Spain): “Why do we have antitrust/competition rules?” (sliders here)

2018 Prof. Frédéric Jenny, OECD, Paris (France): “Challenges for present and future competition law enforcement: Digital economy” (slides here)

2017 Prof. Eleanor Fox, New York University, (USA): “What the new nationalisms bodes for Competition?” (slides here)
