New Delhi, February 6, 2016. Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Kashipur, India, in association with AZB Partners, a leading law firm; Shaping Tomorrow, a futuristic think-cum-action tank; Anupam Sanghi and Associates, a law firm with expertise in Competition, Commercial, Regulatory Law and Risk Mitigating solutions; and LexisNexis, a leading global provider of content and technology solutions; organized the Third International Conference on Competition Regulation and Competitiveness on February 5, 2016, at Hotel Lalit, New Delhi.
The Third Conference attracted some of the top-most global experts in the field of competition regulation, like William Kovacic & Frederic Jenny, apart from the representatives of OECD, FTC & some foreign law firms, as well as some competition agencies from other jurisdictions like Sweden, Turkey and Egypt. Eminent Indian law firms and corporates were also active participants and delegates for the conference. The conference aimed to build and provide a global networking and interaction platform to understand and examine recent developments and prospects of competition regulation in India; to create a knowledge base to assist the decision-makers in different domains like government, regulators and corporates; and to identify actionable agenda for companies, market participants and policy makers.
Mr. Gautam Sinha, Director, Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kashipur, said, “Competition is an interdisciplinary field and should be an integral part of business education. India cannot take its national prosperity for granted; competitive advantage should be seized. Focus should be there on renewability, innovation, and long-term value creation, among other things. This is in light of ‘Make in India, Start-up India, and Skill India as well.”
Mr. Anurag Goel, Founder, “Shaping Tomorrow”, & Former Member, CCI, said, “The concept of ‘Disruptive Innovation’ needs to be understood in light of the fact that how competition regulators behave would change in a changed context. As per my foresight, markets would be different in times to come and therefore, competition regulations should keep pace with that. Otherwise, it won’t be in sync with production and interests of consumers. Virtual platform does not recognize borders and has its own crypto-currency, i.e., bit-coins, and future’s to be about e-platforms.”
Anupam Sanghi, Managing Partner, Anupam Sanghi and Associates, said, “Competitiveness will lead to immense value in business. This is especially true in light of PM Modi’s ‘IT (India’s Talent) + IT (Information Technology) = IT (India Tomorrow). The fundamental issue in the digital economy is how network effects may impact the relative market power of disruptive technology business models as people make choices on the online platform.”
