    Competition Principles in Trade Agreements: Past Results and Future Trends

    12 PM EST

    While the negotiators of the World Trade Organization treaty decided not to include competition principles, more recent trade treaties have done so, with such provisions becoming more elaborate and complex.  Moreover, it appears likely that competition principles of some kind will be incorporated into the Trans-Pacific Partnership (“TPP”) and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (“TATIP”) currently being negotiated by the United States. This panel will analyze past treaties, the goals served by incorporating competition principles, and whether these goals have been successful, as well as discuss the current state of negotiations on TPP and TATIP in addressing the use of competition principles that has generally gone unremarked until now.

    Moderators:

    * James Rill, Senior Counsel, Baker Botts
    * Emilio Varanini, Deputy Attorney General, Antitrust Section, California Attorney General's Office

    Speakers: 

    * Stuart Chemtob, Senior of Counsel, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
    * Greg Slater, Vice President and General Counsel for Intel China, Intel Corporation
