Live: Web conference of AMCU experts at Gorshenin Institute on state aid

LB.ua is broadcasting a web conference by experts of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (AMCU) and the EU Project "Support to the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine for Enforcing State Aid Rules" on "State aid to undertakings in Ukraine: topical issues for the AMCU".

The introduction of the state aid system is one of the elements of reforming the country's economy, which ensures the establishment of new rules, according to which the government provides subsidies and preferences to enterprises or individual sectors of the economy in compliance with the principles of transparency, equality and proportionality. 2018 was the first full calendar year of application of the Law of Ukraine "On State Aid to Undertakings". Naturally, the fundamental change in standards raises a large number of questions and misunderstandings from both the suppliers and the recipients. AMCU specialists are always open to all sorts of questions and happy to help those wishing to master new standards.

- Anna Artemenko, government representative at the AMCU,

- Stefan Sabau, Team Leader of the EU Project "Support to the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine for Enforcing State Aid Rules"

Issues on the agenda:

- New rules of state aid in Ukraine

- How does the AMCU decide whether state aid is appropriate for competition?

- What consequences will the reform of state aid have for Ukraine?

- What are the benefits of the introduction of the state aid system?

- What are the AMCU priorities for 2019?
