UOKiK supports the Ukrainian Antimonopoly Committee

< previous | next > 13.06.2022

UOKiK supports the Ukrainian Antimonopoly Committee
  • Today, we launched a workshop for the Ukrainian Antimonopoly Committee (AMCU).
  • Experts from the UOKiK Department of State Aid Monitoring share their knowledge and experience.
  • The aid project is the result of the UOKiK's involvement in helping Ukraine.

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion on the territory of Ukraine, the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection has been taking steps to support AMCU and provide its employees with a safe haven in Poland as well as with any necessary assistance. UOKiK also supports activities in international forums aimed at further institutional development of Ukraine.

Numerous talks were held between representatives of UOKiK and AMCU, including the Presidents. Their aim was to implement aid measures for the AMCU related to crisis management during the war and the subsequent reconstruction of Ukraine. The Office committed to providing the Committee's staff with expert knowledge relevant to mitigating the negative effects of the war on Ukraine's markets, as well as supporting the resilience and recovery of the country's economy.

On 13 June this year, a three-day workshop began, during which UOKiK specialists shared their knowledge and experience in the area of state aid. The talks concerned state aid granted by local government units, the activities of Korporacja Ubezpieczeń Kredytów Eksportowych in the context of regulations on state aid or the application of state aid rules to entities employing disabled persons in Poland.

Further workshops on issues relating to collusive tendering as well as search and inspection, concentration control or anti-competitive practices will be held later this year.
