APLICAREA LEGISLAȚIEI CONCURENȚIALE ÎN TIMPUL PANDEMIEI

Grigore CHIȚANU

Abstract


Respectarea legislației concurențiale este indispensabilă pentru o economie puternică, inclusiv în cazurile declarării unei pandemii sau instituirii stării de urgențe de către unele state. Măsurile luate de către unele state, cum ar fi închiderea frontierelor, interzicerea exporturilor unor produse (măști medicale, dezinfectante etc.), suspendarea activității unor agenți economici, afectează direct sectoare întregi din economia națională. Respectiv, agenții economici sunt nevoiți să ia unele măsuri care ar putea afecta concurența pe o perioadă restrânsă de timp, însă efectele pot fi de durată.

Prezentul articol cuprinde analiza măsurilor anunțate de către autoritățile de concurență din diferite state cu privire la aplicarea normelor din domeniul concurenței în situația de pandemie.

The measures taken by some states such as: closing the borders, prohibiting exports of some products (medical masks, disinfectants, etc.), suspending the activity of some economic agents, directly affect entire sectors of the national economy, respectively the economic agents are required to take some measures which could affect competition for a limited period of time, but the effects can be lasting. Respectively, this article contains an analysis of the measures announced by the competition authorities of different states regarding the application of the competition rules in the pandemic situation.
