The publication includes submissions from 22 OECD countries which set out in detail the regulatory regime for banking in that country and the competition issues (especially merger-related issues) that have arisen in each country. Also included is a background paper prepared by the OECD secretariat exploring the implications for regulation and competition of the process of "convergence" that is occurring in the banking and insurance sectors, and two paper prepared by an economist at the FTC on competition issues arising in banking networks.
