This seminar will cover a variety of topics in the pharmaceutical sector. We will look at market definition and market power, the role of generics and IP rights, merger control and abuse cases. In addition, the seminar will provide an overview of regulatory frameworks, and an introduction to competition assessment in the pharmaceutical sector. What kind of advocacy action promises to be successful and how can competition authorities co-operate effectively with regulators? Experts from OECD member countries will present and discuss their experiences with the participants.
