Date: 14 September 2020. Duration: 22:12

The Covid-19 pandemic has sparked a raft of regulatory measures addressing antitrust and state-subsidy programs, as well as mergers and acquisitions. Some of these measures will be lifting as the economy emerges from its lockdown-induced slumber; others may have a lasting effect. In this special podcast, we address three examples of three policy areas over which the coronavirus has cast a shadow: M&A in the United States; the enforcement hiatus in the European Union; and the Philippines's controversial decision to wave through significant deals, without regulatory scrutiny. MLex journalists walk us through their reporting for the Covid-19 special report, which is now available for download.
