On European Competition Day, the AdC published report aimed at contributing to an agile and resilient economic recovery
On European Competition Day, which took place on June 15 in Lisbon, the AdC has issued a report aimed at contributing to an agile and resilient economic recovery.
To accelerate economic recovery, it is important to eliminate unnecessary barriers in the various sectors of the economy. The AdC has put forward important recommendations in this regard for the sectors of regulated professions, technological innovation, roads, railways, maritime and ports, electronic communications, energy and electric mobility. The recommendations now addressed to Government include carrying out efficient and competitive public procurement procedures, as well as applying competitive neutrality to public aid measures.
