ANTITRUST WEBINAR Managing antitrust risk and business continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic

During this live debate, we will discuss: • the ways in which authorities are responding to challenges faced by businesses having to engage in industry collaboration in order to ensure security of supplies of essential products and services and mitigate the risk of business failure; • the European Commission’s temporary framework for state aid to enable Governments to provide emergency support for Europe’s businesses and economies; and • the impact of the crisis on global deal timelines as the authorities adjust to new ways of working.

FRC Coordindation Meeting

For the first time in years, the UK-EU relationship is no longer the headline and front page of every news outlet in Europe. However as yet there has been no indication from either side that an extension is being considered, and as a result we know that the business community is still concerned as to what the future may hold. In order to shed some light on this, our next Future Relations Committee meeting will be held as a video conference on Wednesday 25th March, at 16:00 CET.

The Future of EU Fintech Policy

We were pleased to welcome Jan Ceyssens Head of Digital Finance Unit at DG FISMA | European Commission. This discussion covered a wide range of topics on the future of EU fintech policy. Particularly looking at the European Commission’s Digital Agenda and the 2018 FinTech Action Plan. Fintech is cross-sector by nature as it involves various areas such as data, finance as well as AI, for this reason, it is crucial for the Commission to have a holistic approach when it comes to fintech. This is apparent with the Commission’s Digital Agenda, whereby DG FISMA worked closely with DG CONNECT on its creation. This agenda aims to create digital opportunities for businesses and people to ensure that the EU is fit for the digital age. Although the EU is lagging behind the US and China it is clear that it has the potential to catch up and soon become a global leader in this sector.
