Special attention was paid to developing cross-border cooperation and interaction between the regional bodies of FAS and SAIC in the Far East area.

It is a common issue for all countries in the world, therefore, FAS has put forward an initiative to develop the International Toolkit on international cooperation between competition authorities to counter restrictive business practices of large transnational corporations.
