Competitive markets are fundamental to our economy and society, and to us all as business leaders, consumers and taxpayers. Hear from Andrea Coscelli on the importance of competition and the challenges of achieving this in a fast-moving world, with the opportunity to discuss what this means for business.
Competition is a critical issue for business, but our recent research shows that businesses in Scotland don’t understand competition law well -only 18% of Scottish businesses surveyed said did. This roundtable lunch is an opportunity to hear from Andrea Coscelli on why competition matters and what the CMA is doing to promote it. This will include recent case studies and work the CMA has undertaken. There will also be an opportunity to share and discuss competition challenges facing business.
