On July 15, 2019, the European Commission (the "Commission") published its Report on Competition policy for 2018 (the "Report"). This report is prepared annually for the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, the European Economic and Social Committee, and the Committee of the Regions. Once produced, it is debated in the European Parliament and is the subject of a non-legislative resolution. It presents an opportunity for the Commission to provide an update on the most important decisions and legislative and policy initiatives adopted in the field of EU competition law during the previous calendar year. It thus covers the entire range of competition policy issues, from cartels and investigations to mergers and State aid.
