Press conference by Joaquín Almunia, Vice-President of the EC, on the revised competition rules for distribution of goods and services
Joaquín Almunia, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Competition, gave a press conference on the competition rules for distribution of goods and services. The Commission has adopted a Regulation block exempting agreements between manufacturers and distributors for the sale of products and services. The Regulation and accompanying Guidelines take into account the development, in the last 10 years, of the Internet as a force for online sales and for cross-border commerce, something that the EC wants to promote as it increases consumer choice and price competition.
