  • Harri Kalimo – Senior Research Fellow IES–VUB, Welcome
  • Jing Jin – Bureau of Price Supervision and Anti-Monopoly, National Development and Reform Commission, Beijing, The People’s Republic of China - Speaker
  • David Anderson – Partner BLP LLP Brussels, Associate Researcher IES-VUB – Moderator/discussant

The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) is one of China’s major administrative bodies responsible for a wide range of economic, social and environmental laws and policies within China. The ground-breaking 2008 Chinese Antimonopoly Law (AML) gave the NDRC significant new powers to enforce the AML in relation to anticompetitive pricing conduct involving abuse of dominance/monopolies and restrictive practices/cartels. The NDRC is well-known in China but only recently has it started to gain an international profile in the competition field. The Institute for European Studies is pleased to welcome Beijing-based NDRC Anti-Monopoly Bureau official Jing JIN to the VUB to address a fascinating range of key issues relevant to the NDRC’s role and work in the competition field in China and internationally. This session will provide a truly historic chance to hear directly from China’s NDRC here in Brussels.
