The Minister of Production, through Resolution No. 123/2016 dated April 26, 2016 and Resolution No. 135/2016 dated April 29, 2016, has appointed Eduardo Stordeur and María Fernanda Viecens as commissioners of the Argentine Antitrust Commission (CNDC) to replace former commissioners Humberto Guardia Mendoca and Santiago Fernandez. The new commissioners will work alongside with the newly appointed CNDC President, Esteban Greco, and are expected to implement mayor changes in the dynamics of the agency.

María Fernanda Viecens is an economist with a Master in Economics and a Ph.D. in Economics from the Carlos III de Madrid University in Spain. Mrs. Viecens is currently a research fellow at the CONICET (Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas) and a visiting researcher at the Technology and Society Center of San Andrés University in Argentina. She has focused her recent research on industrial organization; regulation and competition policy; network industries; two-sided markets and platforms; telecommunications; the economy of internet; and internet impact on the economy.

 

These appointments are part of the CNDC’s internal structure revamping. Furthermore, the appointment of two other new commissioners is expected soon.
