National Training Workshops on
 Competition Policy and Law Administration In Africa


The Centre for Competition, Investment and Economic Regulation (CUTS CCIER) of CUTS International in association with CUTS Institute for Regulation and Competition (CIRC) organised a series of three-day long National Training Workshops (NTW) in seven African countries over the period July-October 2007. These training workshops were organised under the auspices of the project, “Capacity Building on Competition Policy in Select Countries of Eastern and Southern Africa” (7Up3 Project) in partnership with respective country partners.

The need for the workshops was felt over the period of implementation of the 7Up3 project, which revealed a dire need for raising the level of understanding not only of the government representatives, but also other stakeholders (especially civil society and business organisations) to complement the efforts made by the government (line ministry or the competition authority) to operationalise national competition regimes.
