The placement of public procurements is a highly topical issue at the present time, and one that is being followed extremely carefully. The legislation has gone through dynamic development in recent years, particularly with a view to the transposition of European Union guidelines into the legal code of the Czech Republic. This international conference offers all those interested a unique opportunity for hearing speeches by leading experts from the Czech Republic and abroad, and taking an active part in a live debate on this topical subject. At the end of last November, the Office for the Protection of Competition acted as co-organiser of an international conference to mark the 15th anniversary of the application of competition law in the Czech Republic. The Rotunda of Hall A at Brno Exhibition Centre is now, for the second time in the short period of a year, to become the venue for an important international event featuring the active participation of the Office for the Protection of Competition, focusing on ensuring that an equal approach is taken to all business entities.
