Competition is a vital mechanism of the Romanian economy and the Competition Council in Romania is having a very important role in ensuring a healthy competitive environment. This encourages efficiency and innovation and reduces prices. Also, companies are encouraged to provide consumer goods and services in the most favorable terms.

Every manager, owner, juridical director and acquisition director of companies from all business sectors in Romania are interested in competition regulations because Competition Council advises important business matters from how companies fix their prices to million M&A transactions.

In this context, PRIA Conferences and the Competition Council invites you, as always, at the beginning of every year, to attend the first complex event completely dedicated to competition.

During PRIA Competition conference you will benefit from hearing legislative news regarding competition, high-level analysis and case studies of the most important competition investigations of this year.

The focus is still on the fight against cartels, abuse of dominant companies in their activity sector, mergers and acquisitions, and against unfair competition.

Therefore, competition policies must be known and understood by all those involved in the economy. Companies must know ways of how they can be protected by legislation if they become victims of anti-competitive practices, and which are the penalties they can receive if they decide not to respect competition rules. It is very important for companies to know these regulations in the business field, but for individuals.

Participate to PRIA Competition Conference to analyze the legislation novelties and challenges, but also to find out when they will enter into force. Meet the most important representatives of the Competition Council and other state authorities, representatives of Chambers of Commerce and embassies, representatives from the energy, retail, telecom, media market, the construction and real estate, IT&C, banking sector, pharmaceutical market, transport and logistics, tourism and mass media.
