Vinicius de Carvalho discusses organizational design and digital economy at ICN Conference

VMCA founding partner Vinicius Marques de Carvalho spoke last month at the 2019 International Competition Network (ICN) Annual Conference, hosted by the Colombian Superintendence of Industry and Commerce between May 15th and 17th in Cartagena.

Vinicius was one of the panelist at the breakout session (BOS) “Organizational design – Getting in shape for the digital economy”, which discussed how Competition authorities around the world are taking different approaches to their staffing and structure to ensure that they are well placed to face the competition challenges posed on digital markets – for example, some competition authorities have implemented horizontal working groups for digital issues, while others have created specialised digital units or recruited digital or forensic IT staff within existing structures. The BOS explored different options adopted by Competition authorities, to gauge successes and challenges.
