Interested in knowing how #competitiveneutrality can help balance competing interests in making enforcement choices, serving constituents and consumers, addressing political influences, and assessing social objectives?
It is a fundamental principle of competition law and policy that firms should compete on the merits and should not benefit from undue advantages for example due to their ownership or nationality.
Government actions can sometimes prevent, restrict or distort competition within a market.
They can set procurement/tax rules or regulatory regimes putting private companies at a disadvantage compared to state-controlled or supported firms, or yet, they can assign market regulatory functions to firms that currently or potentially compete on the same markets.
Ensuring a level playing field is, therefore, key to enabling competition to work properly and deliver benefits to consumers and the wider economy.
Throughout the years, the OECD Competition Committee has taken different initiatives to analyze the topic from different angles.
