The Covid-19 crisis has further increased the relevance of online training initiatives.
In February 2021, the OECD-GVH Regional Centre for Competition in Budapest, which provides capacity building to 18 competition authorities in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, launched the project “Key competition topics explained in few minutes”, which builds on the discussion at its seminars to create short, focused videos on key competition notions.
The project has proven extremely successful.
The first training video “Antitrust Commitments explained in 5 minutes” has already obtained approximately 1,400 views (more than 900 views for the English version, almost 500 views for the Russian version); while the second video “Competitive Neutrality explained in 6 minutes” has exceeded 700 views in three months (550 views for the English version, almost 200 views for the Russian version).
The third training video “Bid Rigging and Competition Policy explained in 7 minutes” has just been released.
