Panels will consider the new nationalism and the special problems it poses for competition systems in developing countries; pharmaceuticals and the recent spate of excessive pricing of essential drugs; mergers, innovation and new technology issues; and an enforcers' rountable.

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) doesn’t often rule on competition cases, and it rules against the European Commission even less frequently. Its Sept. 6 ruling giving Intel another shot at appealing a 1.06 billion-euro ($1.26 billion) fine in effect hands the EC a defeat by reversing a lower court decision that completely affirmed the EC’s case."
