Competition Law and Development

Competition advocacy is a critical component of a competition agency's role, especially in developing countries. Developing countries are typically undergoing significant economic reforms such as developing and opening their markets and privatizing state-owned assets and enterprises. Competition advocacy can help to ensure that competition principles are incorporated into this transition process. In this chapter, we review the traditional model of competition advocacy and explore its relevance to and limitations in developing countries. In light of these limitations, we consider an alternative approach to competition advocacy, a “national competition policy” approach. We discuss Australia's experience with its national competition policy and its relevance for developing countries.
