Essential Antitrust #34: Olivier Guersent on competition enforcement: current trends

Nearly four years into his mandate as Director-General for Competition, Olivier Guersent joins us to reflect on this and on his 30-year career at the European Commission. 

Olivier speaks with our podcast hosts Jenn Mellott and Laurent Garzaniti to debate the most significant enforcement milestones and challenges faced by DG Competition in recent years. These range from the state of EU antitrust policy and the growing divergence in global antitrust enforcement to the implementation of the EU’s new Digital Markets Act and Foreign Subsidies Regulation.

In this latest episode of our Essential Antitrust podcast, Olivier Guersent shares his observations on these challenges and aspirations for antitrust enforcement in the future.
