    Concerned

    "EU competition law is concerned to protect the interests of consumers."

    I read that sentence in a textbook. Would you say that "is concerned" means the same as "aims" in this case?

    Thanks!

    Re: Concerned

    This doesn't read well to me. I wouldn't say laws are "concerned."

    "The EU competition law aims to protect..." sounds better.
