Levelling the Playing Field? The European Union's New Regulation on Foreign Subsidies Distorting the Internal Market

October 10, 2022

London partner Matthew Hall co-hosted the October 10 episode of the ABA’s Our Curious Amalgam podcast on the topic “Levelling the Playing Field? The European Union’s New Regulation on Foreign Subsidies Distorting the Internal Market.”

To keep a level playing field among EU member countries, subsidies granted by those countries to companies engaged in competition in the EU are subject to the EU’s state aid rules. But what about subsidies granted by non-EU countries which may impact the EU single market? Andreas Reindl, a partner at Van Bael & Bellis in Brussels, joins Alicia Downey and Matthew Hall to discuss the EU’s new Regulation on foreign subsidies distorting the internal market, which authorizes the European Commission to investigate and issue orders to remediate the adverse effects of such foreign subsidies. Listen to this episode to learn more about this new Regulation and its implications for companies making acquisitions or involved in public tenders in the EU.

Our Curious Amalgam explores topics in antitrust, competition, consumer protection, data protection, and privacy law around the world with leading experts in those areas. It is an amalgam because it is a group of diverse topics all in one place. It is curious because it gets the experts and asks them in-depth questions.
