Please note that this is a virtual event taking place live via Zoom. If you are interested in attending, please register for the event.

On 17 June 2020, the European Commission issued its White Paper on levelling the playing field as regards foreign subsidies. This document suggests that foreign subsidies may distort the internal market and give rise to a regulatory gap. It proposes new powers which would enable the Commission to tackle the problem. This initiative should be viewed alongside the Foreign Direct Investment Screening Regulation 2016/1037 which will be applicable in its full scope in October 2020.

This webinar brings together eminent lawyers who will reflect on the content, context, and implications of the White Paper.

Chair: Professor Panos Koutrakos, Professor of EU Law and Jean Monnet Professor of EU law, City, University of London

Speakers:

Sir Jonathan Faull, Brunswick Group, Former European Commission Director General
Isabelle Van Damme, Van Bael & Bellis, Brussels
Frank Hoffmeister, European Commission Directorate-General for Trade
Carolina Dackö, Mannheimer Swartling, Gothenburg
