Regional one-stop shop competition authority critical’



The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa Competition Commission said the establishment of a regional one-stop shop competition authority is critical in carrying out advocacy programmes which can be financially challenging for individual member countries. Article 55 of the treaty establishing COMESA sets out the foundation for the development of a competition policy in the Common Market. To realise this objective, the COMESA Treaty provides in Article 55(3) and in compliance with this Article, COMESA adopted a regional competition policy through the publication of the COMESA Competition Regulations. The regulations call for the regional competition authority to support member states undertaking competition advocacy programmes, which can be financially challenging for individual countries.
