FAS discussed the main event of 2017 and their impact upon antimonopoly regulation
Digitalization of the economy, tariff reforms, roaming and other important aspects of antimonopoly regulation were discussed today at the 9th annual conference on “Antimonopoly regulation in Russia”.
Deputy Head of FAS Anatoly Golomolzin highlighted three main issues: specifics of digital economy, changes in tariff regulation, and FAS efforts to decrease roaming rates.
He said: “The result of our work should be that subscribes will truly feel themselves in roaming like at home and cellular communications operators will increase their profit through expanding subscribers’ loyalty”.
Deputy Head of FAS Sergey Puzyrevsky pointed out changes related to market digitalization and emphasized the need for FAS to conform to those changes.
“A lot of spheres are being already monopolized intellectually, not only technologically and financially. Our task is to promptly react to such challenges and adjust to the market methods”, said Deputy Head of FAS.
Deputy Head of FAS Andrey Tsyganov supported the importance of the issue and stated that “Markets have become and integrated concept, companies started offering a set of services, rather than a single service, that can be quite diverse. In view of those changes we have outlined approaches to analyzing such markets”.
