ZEW President Wambach comments on the change in chairmanship of the Monopolies Commission:
“Professor Jürgen Kühling will now take office as chairman of the Monopolies Commission, where he will face several important tasks. In the past four years, the Monopolies Commission has worked intensively on issues related to the digitalisation of the economy and the systemic competition with China.
Now, it will have to critically and constructively evaluate the upcoming further development of EU competition law, and for Germany, it will have to prepare the Sector Reports. The railway and energy sectors, which are of crucial importance for the energy transition, require stronger competitive structures. With a research focus on the regulation of network industries, Jürgen Kühling comes highly prepared for these tasks. We wish him the best of success and luck in his new role.”
Professor Wambach has been a member of the Monopolies Commission since July 2014 and was appointed as its chairman in March 2016. In April 2016, he took on the position as president of ZEW Mannheim. His term of office as member of the Monopolies Commission ends in 2022.
The Monopolies Commission advises the German government and legislature in the areas of competition policy-making, competition law, and regulation.
