Parecer de secção do CESE: Annual competition policy report 2019


In 2019, the Commission's competition policy and enforcement actions continued to target anticompetitive conduct and measures in markets of particular relevance for citizens and businesses in the EU, such as the telecommunications and digital sectors, energy and environment, financial services, taxation, agriculture and food, manufacturing and transport. In 2019, to ensure that competition law remains fit for purpose, the Commission also engaged in broad evaluation exercises, aimed at assessing the functioning of competition rules. The still ongoing reviews cover the antitrust regulations that will expire in the current mandate and the respective guidelines, the Notice on Market Definition, a number of State aid rules and guidance, and the evaluation of certain aspects of EU merger control.
