The President of the AdC (Autoridade da Concorrência), Margarida Matos Rosa, has become an elected member on the International Competition Network (ICN) Steering Group for the 2019-2021 mandate.

This is the first time AdC is elected as an effective member of the ICN Steering Group.
 
The AdC is also a co-chair of the ICN's initiative to promote implementation of good practices at a global level and ensures ICN's coordination with the OECD's Competition Committee.
 
At the ICN Steering Group, the Portuguese authority replaces the Dutch authority and joins counterparts from around the world, including Germany, which chairs the ICN, the United States Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission, and the European Commission.
