The Serbian national competition authority (NCA) has launched two antitrust investigations against companies active in the retail of consumer electronics in Serbia. Interestingly, the NCA decided to open the investigations to establish how come consumer electronics are more expensive in Serbia than in neighboring Hungary.
For more than two years already, a new Serbian Competition Act has been brewing. Now, a draft of the new legislation has been published. If adopted, what changes will it bring to Serbian competition law?
What was new in competition law in Montenegro in the previous year?
The Serbian NCA has announced it has started an antitrust investigation against a Polish company Polanik Sp. z o.o. and its Serbian distributor (GR Sport). Polanik is active in the production and wholesale of sports equipment.
Now that it’s behind us, it’s safe to say the previous year was one of the most eventful ones since modern Serbian competition law came to being. This not only due to a fairly active Competition Commission, but also due to other developments, such as those surrounding the drafting of a new Competition Act.
