Seminar on Market Access and Market Fragmentation

7 November 2019 in Bern, Switzerland

Thanks to Professor Philipp Zurkinden, AEA-EAL Past President and Professor Michael Hahn, Director of the World Trade Institute, University of Bern, we organised for the second time a highly successful conference on the legal parameters of market access and market fragmentation including international and unilateral standards.

The conference brought together high-level speakers representing perspectives of various state and non-state actors. Conference speakers focused on specific sectors and problems like: Financial Services: International Standards and Market Access in the Post-Crisis Era, Strategies for Swiss Financial Market, Cross-border coordination and cooperation: A Supervisor’s Perspective, question on EU Market Access – an Uphill Battle for the Swiss Finance Industry? Defying Gravity: The Switzerland – UK Agreements of 2019 and the challenges of extricating from regional market access regimes, Internalizing Environmental, Social and Governance Standards in Investment Banking: Tackling the long-term in a short-term world, Market Access for Pharmaceuticals, and Market Access for Med-tech Products.

After discussion panels, a roundtable took place with participation of Marion Jansen, ITC Geneva, Monica Mächler, Zurich Insurance Group, Professor Michael Hahn and Professor Philipp Zurkinden.
