Speaker Knut Fournier will briefly introduce competition law in the context of the maritime sector, before looking at a series of case studies – the liner conferences’ structure, price announcements among shipping liners and the market for transportation of cars. The final case study will focus on the rejection of the P3 Alliance by the Chinese regulator. The seminar will reflect on whether the maritime sector should be exempted from competition rules, as is the case in Singapore.
