Competition: international dimension and enlargement
In the context of increasing globalisation, the activities of European firms are becoming more and more international and the activities of firms in third countries are likely to have an impact on competition within the European Union. As such, international cooperation stands out as a key element of competition policy.
Furthermore, the compliance of candidate States with the Community acquis on competition matters is an essential requirement for their accession to the Union.
