Project Summary

Online platforms are changing markets, business models and competition in innovative, and sometimes, disruptive ways. In this regard, regulating online platforms has become a priority for competition authorities, regulatory agencies and policy makers. Considering the aforementioned, this project aims to strengthen the capacity and understanding of the competition authorities in APEC region about the economic and technological aspects of online platforms to timely reshape their enforcement tools and advocate for competition-supportive and technologically neutral regulation.

The project will organize a three-day workshop in Mexico City and publish a report on the current Competition Policy for Regulating Online Platforms in the APEC Region. The analysis will focus on the online marketplaces platforms, social networks and advertising platforms, search engine platforms; and streaming services. The purpose of the workshop is to exchange best practices, information and tools used by competition authorities, regulatory agencies or policy makers during their analysis of the economic competition in online platforms markets and the report will assemble a common understanding that APEC members could use as a reference towards the new challenges of the digital era.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: The economic analysis of the digital markets, such as online platforms, is generating important challenges to the competition authorities, and there is no consensus nor harmonized theoretical tools for competition assessment for this kind of services. APEC members are not the exception and many of them host undertakings that significantly contribute to digital developments. Therefore, the exchange of experiences on this topic results timely and desirable in order to identify ways to define markets with multiple sides or innovative ones, to assess competition conditions or dominance, and to eliminate barriers to entry or market failures. 

The project will organize a workshop and publish a Report in order to contribute in the understanding of the current legal and regulatory framework of the APEC region and to define points of enforcement and analysis that the domestic competition authorities could consider to deal with online platform markets on legal, regulatory and economic competition perspective. 

As we mentioned before, the economic analysis of online platforms is a worldwide phenomenon, and with this project, the APEC region could gain a positive impact on their regulatory and policymaking practices. The report will take into account an overview of the current trends and challenges on regulation policy regarding online platforms; the importance and impact of regulation or non-regulation of online platforms for promoting and ensuring market competition, and for firms or enterprises, particularly micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs). In this regard, the whole Project will serve as a reference not only for APEC members, but also for other competition authorities, regulators, policymakers, firms, and consumers. 

Relevance – Eligibility: This project fits the eligibility criteria for the General Project Account (GPA) since it complies with the GPA funding priority for 2018: Strengthening Inclusive Growth through Structural Reform. Since structural reform is critical to removing the structural and regulatory obstacles that inhibit cross-border trade and investment and that create behind-the-border barriers to doing business. The structure reform improves the functioning of the markets, and broadens and deepens the market participation, helping economies to raise productivity and strengthen inclusive growth. In addition, this project is an ongoing work under EC that stimulates discussions that will advance APEC’s ongoing discussions and initiatives on digital age, the key areas of this priority are promoting Good Regulatory Practices (GRP) and Competition Policy and Digital age/technology as key drivers to harness inclusive growth. As well with the criteria for promoting sustainable, innovative and inclusive growth and strengthening MSMEs’ Competitiveness and Innovation in the digital age. 

Relevance – Capacity Building: The development of new digital goods and services like Online Platforms poses some questions and challenges to competition authorities’ approaches. Taking into account this, one of the purposes of this project is to promote the collaboration between competition agencies in order to share their criteria, tools and practices to enforce and advocate for competition regarding online platforms and to identify ways on how to address online platforms in regulations and policies – specifically on economic competition— to support sustainable development.

Capacity building is one of the main goals of APEC fora and sub-fora according to the CPLG Priorities for 2018. The capacity building oriented projects targets focus on the understanding of competition laws and policies in the region and the promotion of technical cooperation among APEC member economies. In this regard, the project will contribute to the capacity building of the APEC member economies because it will help to understand and identify efficient and new methods to enforce competition law for regulating online platforms.

As we said before, regulating online platform is important for promoting competition in the region, which will promote efficient markets and drive productivity in the region. For that reason, with this project, the competition authorities, regulatory agencies as well as policy makers from the member economies will have the opportunity to share and obtain relevant information to improve their policies and regulations regarding competition policy and online platforms.

In the same way, this project complies with the Policy on APEC´s Capacity Building through Economic and Technical Cooperation:

·   APEC´s Capacity Building Operational Principles: consistency, innovation, enabling, results-based, among others for capacity building.

·   APEC’s Goals for Capacity Building: these activities will contribute to improve the economic and social well-being of the people, promote the economic sustainable development of the APEC region and deepen the spirit of community in the Asia Pacific region.

·   APEC’s objectives for capacity building: finally, this project will contribute to build the capacity of APEC member economies’ in competition policy, considered a relevant area in the Osaka Agenda.

Objectives

1) To build capacity in the current competition policy for regulating online platforms markets of APEC economies;

2) To assess the current competition policies   for regulating online platforms in the APEC region;

3) To identify theoretical and analytical tools oriented to harmonize a common ground for competition policy for regulating online platforms markets in the APEC region; and

4) To identify innovative regulatory approaches that can be developed for a timely and adequate competition enforcement and advocacy.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC:  The project will contribute to strengthen the knowledge on how APEC members address the developments of Online Platforms and their impact on competition. Considering this purpose, the alignment with APECs priorities is the following:

·   The pillars of APEC: liberalization of trade and investment, facilitation of business and economic and technical cooperation.

·   The broad priority of APEC’s Principles to Enhance Competition and Regulatory Reform endorsed by APEC ministers in 1999.

·   The Bogor Goals, this project match the initiative of enhanced competition policy and advancing in a free and open trade and investment to realize the potential of the Internet and digital economy, including through appropriate regulatory and policy frameworks, and taking into account fair competition to encourage investment and innovation.

·   The General Principles of the Osaka Agenda, referring to technical cooperation.

·  The Competition Policy 2014 Collective Action Plan when refers to contribute to the use of trade and competition laws, policies and measures that promote free and open trade, investment and competition.

Summary of Workshop

Final conclusion and remarks

Outcomes: The immediate outcome of the project is that APEC members will be able to exchange experiences and approaches about how to enhance competition law and policy to address the impacts of online platforms via a dedicated forum. As mentioned above, the economic analysis of the digital markets, such as Online Platforms, poses significant questions to the competition authorities, so it is timely and relevant to provide the opportunity to share the different approaches, criteria, conceptual frameworks and tools for an adequate assessment, enforcement and intervention. For example, currently there are debates and reviews on how to define markets with multiple sides or innovative ones, how to assess competition conditions or dominance, and how to eliminate barriers to entry or market failures, what thresholds would be relevant to enforce merger controls and how to measure them if undertakings are disseminated in several jurisdictions.

The expected medium and long term outcome of the project is to strengthen the capacity of the competition authorities in the APEC region about the economic and technological aspects of online platforms to timely reshape their tools enforce and advocate for eventual regulatory coherence and competition-supportive and technologically neutral regulation. 

In the medium and long term, the report could be useful to APEC members’ economies in assessing the accuracy and coherence of their competition tools and their legal framework regarding Online Platforms. Considering the above, the project proposed will lead to the following mid-term and long-term outcomes:

·  Improvement in the competition policy for Online Platforms;

·  Identification of relevant issues, challenges and opportunities related with the development Online Platforms;

·  Identification of the accuracy of the legal framework for APEC members, regarding Online Platforms;

·  To promote efficient markets as a drivers of productivity for economic development. 

Beneficiaries: The principal beneficiaries of the project will be officers of competition agencies and new competition authorities from APEC member economies.

According to the proposed topic, the criteria to select the participants on the panels will be the following:

·   Experts on economic competition and online platforms (multi-sided platforms), especially in the types and trends, business models and economics.

·   Experts on the regulatory and legal framework related with innovation and new services and markets based on internet from competition and regulatory authorities, academy or private sector.

·   Policy makers, and competition and regulatory authorities, with expertise on economic competition law and policy in Online Platforms with expertise in competition law and policy, especially in economic competition analysis, merger control abuse of dominance practices cases and competition enforcement actions.

·  Competition and regulatory authorities of economies belonging to APEC that present their domestic frameworks for legal and regulatory issues.

The beneficiaries’ profiles and their engaging in the workshop are the following:

·   Participants: They will have the opportunity to increase and improve their knowledge on the implementation of the competition law and policy addressing the impacts of the digital economy, including Online Platforms. Participants and experts will share their experiences in the topics or by asking specific questions that will enrich the discussion about regulation and policymaking.

·   Policymakers: The proposedReport will be helpful as a reference that summarizes the conclusions and opinions of the experts and participants in the workshop. The policy makers will participate as panelist and will enrich the workshop with their opinion and expertise.

·   Competition Authorities: The project will provide a forum that will allow competition authorities to interact and share experiences and viewpoints of the new digital markets, like Online Platforms, ranging from the application of the economic competition theory to the improvement of the legal and regulatory framework. Like the Policymakers, the Competition Authorities will be an important part of the success of the workshop, because of their expertise in the application of the economic competition tools and their knowledge in the legal and regulatory framework.

·   End users: Considering that the project’s outcome is oriented to strengthen competition tools for a timely and adequate assessment of the impacts of the digital economy, they will benefit from the reshaped approach on the competition criteria, tools and practices. 

The organization of the project will promote APEC’s gender balance principles, both regarding nominated participants and invited speakers; the Project Overseer will seek to ensure that presenters/speakers and participants have a significant female representation which is targeted at least at forty percent. APEC travel-eligible economies will be invited to send two participants who can be EC/CPLG representatives of their economies.

Dissemination

The main outcome of the project is the electronic publication of a report edited by the PO according to the APEC Publication Guidelines and the APEC Logo Guidelines. The report will be published in the APEC Publication Website. The report,will include the information from the questionnaire circulated and relevant information form the contributions presented by APEC economic competition authorities members in the workshop.

The target audience for the report is the competition authorities and policymakers from economic competition authorities with the attributions regulate online platforms markets of the APEC economies. Nevertheless, the report will be of the interest of experts, the academy, private sector, end users and entrepreneurs. Thus, it will be circulated among the participants and they will be invited to circulate in their agencies and networks.

Gender

The organization of the workshop will promote APEC’s gender balance principles, the Project Overseer will seek to ensure that presenters/speakers and participants have a significant female representation which is targeted at least at forty percent. Consistently, these gender balance principles will be adopted through the equal number of male and female participants and speakers’ invitations to the workshop.

PO is committed to collect sex disaggregated data for all speakers and participants (not only the APEC funded) at the project event. This data will be included when submitting a Completion Report to the Secretariat at the completion of the project achieved as well as giving future POs guidance on their own gender parity targets.

Monitoring and Evaluation

·  Gender participant’s statistics (attendance by economy and gender). The project will seek to ensure that presenters/speakers and participants have a significant female representation which is targeted at least at forty percent. It will be used a female participation indicator. This indicator will reveal the proportion of women´s participation in the workshop and will be calculated as follows: (Number of attendees/Number of women attending the workshop) *100. If the result of the computation is, over 40% it will be considered that the objective was successfully met.

·   Gender speakers’ statistics (attendance by economy and gender). The project will seek to ensure that presenters/speakers and participants have a significant female representation which is targeted at least at forty percent. It will be used a female participation indicator. This indicator will reveal the proportion of women´s participation in the workshop and will be calculated as follows: (Number of attendees/Number of women attending the workshop) *100. . If the result of the computation is, over 40% it will be considered that the objective was successfully met.          

·   The Program Overseer will send an online questionnaire to the participants and attendees in order to evaluate their experience participating and attending to the workshop (assessment on objective, content, speakers’ effectiveness, knowledge achieved and logistical preparations). According to the APEC Project Guidebook.

The response for attending competition authorities, policy makers and economic and legal experts on economic competition issues and Online Platforms.This indicator will reflect the rate of participation of these actors, and will be calculated as follows: (Number of assistants -competition authorities, policy makers and legal and economic experts-/Number of invitations issued)*100. If the result is above 80% of invitations accepted it would be considered that the project is appealing, therefore relevant for competition authorities, policy makers and economic and legal experts on economic competition issues.

Linkages

In order to engage with relevant experts and APEC fora the Project Overseer will consider the participation of experts from OECD to participate and/or from other relevant organizations (public and private). This project intends to promote cross-fora collaboration since it considers circulating the agenda for comments and inviting other fora such as ABAC, ECSG, GOS, IEG, SCSC, SME and TELWG, as well as consider provide APEC travel funds if the places are not completely used by CPLG members, as well to consider fund travel expenses of experts from the above mentioned fora.

The project is relevant since there are no previous work on the matter in the APEC groups.

Sustainability

The “Information Sharing Best Practices Workshop on Merger Control Regimes”, that was held in Papua New Guinea in February 2018 [EC 06 2017A], considered that competition can generate benefits for an economy, such as; economic growth, innovation; productivity; and increased consumer choice for goods & services, which lead to eventual price reductions. This project also considers APEC as a space for creating and sharing information, where several mature competition authorities are able to share knowledge and skills with members that are relatively new and need further domestic capacity building. 

In the same way, the project on “Competition Policy for Regulating Online Platforms” proposes the analysis and development of economic competition analysis tools for online platforms markets in order to understand the importance and impact of regulation or non-regulation of online platforms for promoting and ensuring market competition, and for firms or enterprises, particularly micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and generate benefits for the APEC economies. 

In this regard, the Project “Competition Policy for Regulating Online Platforms” will take into account the discussion and the report about merger control regimes; at the same time, the latter will supplement the information shared previously on control regimes by adding relevant information related to the current regulatory regimes for online platforms.

The project seeks to make a long-term impact on each APEC economy, which might be helpful for some economies when implementing new competition policies regarding online platforms. 

Due to the relevance of the project and the innovative dynamic of online platforms, it is possible that the workshop will be the first of several other projects related to this topic. Therefore, as future actions of the project, would be the proposal for the CPLG about the creation of follow-up projects such as new workshops, research papers or recommendations, after consultation with CPLG members.
