Breaking up companies like Google and Facebook won’t be necessary: EU antitrust chief

Breaking up companies like Google and Facebook won't be necessary: EU antitrust chief

EU antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager said that splitting up large tech companies such as Google and Facebook will not be necessary.

“It will never come to that,” Vestager told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagzeitung newspaper in an interview. “Up until now, we haven’t had any cases that could lead to such a move.”

She said she did not think breaking up the companies would be needed.

European Competition Commissioner is due to announce new draft rules for the digital sector on December 2.
