Dear ICN Delegates,
The Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE) is honored to host the 2019 International Competition Network (ICN) Cartel Workshop from October 7 to 10, at the Wish Resort in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil.
The theme of the workshop is “Cartels in the Age of Data-Driven Economy” and it will focus on the paradoxical impact of data on cartels since it can be used to facilitate collusion and also help agencies to detect cartels. Some of the topics that will be discussed at the event are: delineation of cartel activities in a changing business environment; challenges and information management for data-driven markets; antitrust liability for software-based infringements; intelligence and screening tools; effective leniency and evidence assessment in the digital era; due process and cooperation tools.
As in the past editions, the 2019 ICN Cartel Workshop will focus on practical issues of cartel enforcement, encouraging experience sharing and dynamic debates among its participants. In addition to representatives of ICN member agencies and Non-Governmental Advisors (NGAs) are invited to participate in the Workshop.
CADE looks forward to welcoming ICN members from around the world to Foz do Iguaçu in the South American spring of 2019, in the week on which Brazil celebrates the national day on fighting cartels.
