International cooperation is an important part of the activities of the Antimonopoly Office. With increasing number of international transactions, powerful multinational companies and international cartels it is increasingly necessary for countries to cooperate with each other. More effective enforcement of competition policy is enhanced by the exchange of information, knowledge and experience as well as direct working contacts and consultations with experts from different countries.
Firstly, the Office performs tasks resulting from the membership of the Slovak Republic in the European Union. Majority of international cooperation takes place with the European Commission within the European Competition Network (ECN). Other international fora, in which the authority is involved, include Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), International Competition Network (ICN) and European Competition Authorities (ECA). Bilateral cooperation, in particular with the countries of Central European Region, is also a significant part of the international activities. The employees are also actively involved in various international conferences.
