Competition Policy Priorities

January 13, 2017, 12:00 – 14:00, Building 5, 5th Floor, Assembly Hall

Competition implies instability. However, to become stable, we need to be competitive. Competitors legally cause harm to each other’s interests, and the scope of this damage often exceeds the damage caused by illicit actions under the Penal Code. Competition can lead to loss of jobs and can ruin politically attractive entrepreneurs, including domestic producers and small businesses. Development of competition means that security will be reduced in some areas. 

Issues for Discussion

  • Ethics and the eternal values of competition
  • In which areas should protection be reduced?
  • Should protection of Russian companies from foreign competition be reduced?
  • Should public procurement be used to support businesses?
  • What should we answer to those who will suffer from the competition?
