This conference is following from last time in Budapest, and the years before in Warsaw, Brno and Budapest. Countries that acceded to the European Union in the 21st century have long history with competition law. Most of these countries also represent smaller, open market economies, which have faced a rapid privatisation process. Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary have also endured several common historical events that make them face similar market situations and problems.
The conferences in previous years have involved leading practitioners, academics and public officials from several countries (see the programs: Budapest, Warsaw, Brno and Budapest). With this year's program we follow this tradition
