With the Covid-19 lockdown increasing our reliance on online markets and services, significant new measures in UK digital competition regulation are being developed following the Government’s acceptance of the proposals in the Furman Review. 

Join Mike Craven of Lexington Communications and Rory Chisholm of FIPRA International for a discussion and Q&A on what to expect.

Among the topics discussed will be:

  • Can Government strike the balance between new regulation and encouraging tech investment?
  • How will the planned new Digital Markets Unit or Regulator work in practice?
  • Has the COVID-19 crisis accelerated trends in digital markets, or introduced new issues for consumers?
  • How closely will the UK need to work with other jurisdictions in addressing digital markets?
