The foreign minister said Hungary, as a promoter of free and fair world trade, wants to ensure “real competition” in which strong and expert competition authorities are key players.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, attended a conference of the International Competition Network (ICN) in Budapest on Wednesday. The three-day conference hosted by the Hungarian competition authority GVH has drawn some 100 speakers and 1,700 attendees from 130 countries.
GVH head Csaba Balázs Rigó said the conference was a “great opportunity” for the Hungarian authority to keep abreast of cutting-edge knowhow and analytical tools. The conference focuses on current issues such as warding off cross-border anti-competition measures, “crisis cartels during the pandemic”, and issues regarding digitalisation and innovation, he said.
