On 7 March, the University of Warsaw’s Faculty of Management hosted a seminar organised by the Centre for Antimonopoly and Regulatory Studies (CARS) devoted to disproportionate contracting advantage, a concept introduced in a recently enacted Polish statute with implications for the agricultural and food retail sectors.

The second panel of the event, entitled  "Public-law elements. The public interest and the role of UOKiK. How should ‘significant disproportion in economic potential’ be measured ?", featured Bernadeta Kasztelan-Świetlik, who spoke about practical interpretation of the elusive concept of economic potential in the new law.
