FTC and DOJ Host Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Workshop

Officials hold a roundtable discussion about competition policy and agency organization.

 The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) hosted a two-day workshop last week for this year’s senior meeting for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). It’s been 12 years since the United States last hosted APEC, and President Biden’s administration will be hosting three additional APEC meetings later this year as well. 

The workshop invited experts in courtroom advocacy, antitrust policy, and economic competition to give presentations and roundtables focused on tailoring economic legislation for a dynamically changing world. FTC Commissioner Rebecca Kelly Slaughter opened the workshop by emphasizing innovation and interconnectedness as cornerstones of global economic collaboration.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For FTC Chair Lina Khan and members of the commission as they support the Asia-Pacific economy.
  • For officials in the Justice Department as they collaborate on legalities in global trade policy.
