One group targeted on information governance and know-how platforms, proposes a transatlantic discussion board for exchanging dialogue on competitors in digital markets.
“The aim is to establish a structured policy dialogue dedicated to key emerging issues in platform governance, including competition in digital markets, in order to find common ground on the scope of the challenges, to seek greater consistency where feasible in policy and regulatory approaches and to coordinate on enforcement (including on the contestability and fairness of the online platform economy),” the doc states.
The new commitments come after the EU and the U.S. arrange a Joint Technology Competition Policy Dialogue (TCPD) in June 2021, targeted on collaborating throughout competitors coverage and enforcement within the know-how sector.
