The president of the Competition Commission, Miloje Obradović, recently spoke at the Sub-committee on Internal Market and Competition meeting in Brussels, which is held regularly according to the framework of Serbia's EU accession process.
Obradović briefed the European Commission representatives on all of the activities undertaken to implement the Competition Act and on the level of harmonisation of Serbian competition legislation with the acquis communautaire.
In his speech, Obradović said that the Competition Commission will make an effort to familiarise judges with competition law rules. He particularly emphasised that future sectoral analyses will focus on the markets that have caught the commission's attention in the past. The sectors that could be investigated include the gas, retail and pharmaceutical markets.
Obradović stressed that the commission intends to intensify the promotion of its leniency programme and plans to involve all stakeholders in the drafting of its bills in order to ensure transparency.
It was stated at the sub-committee meeting that Serbia closely follows the European Union's competition protection development dynamics and strives to bring its standards into line with the European Union. This was confirmed by the European Commission's assessment in the recently published 2016 Progress Report, which states that Serbia's legislative framework has to a large extent been harmonised with the acquis communautaire.
