The participants will arrive from around thirty OECD member countries, as well as a large group of countries closely cooperating with that organization, including Russia, China, Brazil and Indonesia, the OECD press office reports.
Russia is one of the first non-OECD member countries whose competition laws will be discussed as a separate issue, reads the Antitrust Ministry's report posted on its official website.
"This discussion will be very topical and timely, given the current effort undertaken by the ministry to draw up a new competition bill," a ministry source said. "The OECD member countries' experience in this field could contribute to the development of an effective law aimed at bringing the Russian and foreign antitrust legislations closer together. It will help us harmonize the competition regulation system as a whole."
