SwissHoldings: Competition rules need to be applied and enforced in strict compliance with the rule of law.
Effective competition requires the long-term assurance of an appropriate legal framework for competitive enterprises. SwissHoldings’ member firms are global leaders in the production of goods and services. As such they rely on competition rules which provide legal certainty and which are enforced in strict accordance with the rule of law.
- Rejection of amendments to the Competition Act to combat the „high price island Switzerland“. Such are both unnecessary and incongruous with the regulatory policy.
- Improving the rule of law in competition proceedings and mitigation of sanctions when a robust inhouse compliance organization is in place.
- Switzerland needs a coherent digital economy strategy.
SwissHoldings’s member firms rely on access to markets, legal certainty and due process in competition law matters.
