MOSCOW, October 31. /TASS/. The Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) proposes using the experience of conducting cases against Google and Apple in other BRICS countries, FAS deputy head Andrey Tsyganov said on Monday.
"We are currently engaged in sharing our experience. For us, the next step after that would be carrying out investigations simultaneously," Tsyganov said answering a question about the possibility of investigating cases against Google and Apple with BRICS.
At the same time, FAS might not transfer all information on such cases to colleagues, Tsyganov said. "We are not talking about classified information, which is a commercial secret, but we share our experience with them," he explained.
According to Tsyganov, BRICS countries focus on antitrust cooperation in areas such as pharmaceuticals, automobile industry, food market and sales channels, as these spheres are heavily monopolized around the world.
In May, FAS and the BRICS antitrust agencies signed a Memorandum of Understanding. BRICS member states plan to fight unfair practices of transnational corporations and international cartels.
