Participation of the Autorité de la concurrence in the work of the G7 led by the Japanese presidency on digital competition

The Autorité de la concurrence participates in the work of the G7 on digital competition, chaired this year by Japan. The creation of this working group is the result of an initiative by the French presidency of the G7 in 2019 to bring together the G7 competition authorities around the issues raised by the application of competition law in the digital economy.

The President of the Autorité de la concurrence, Benoît Coeuré, participated in the working group meeting organized by the Japanese presidency in Tokyo on 8 and 9 November.

During the meeting, the G7 competition authorities and policymakers adopted the joint annual update of the "Compendium of Approaches to Improving Competition in Digital Markets" and for the first time a “Digital Competition Communiqué” which sets out the initiatives to promote and protect competition in digital markets and commitment to address competition concerns arising from emerging technologies.
