August 06-07, 2010, Dakar, Senegal

CUTS Centre for Competition, Investment & Economic Regulation (CUTS CCIER) is implementing a two-year project ‘Strengthening Constituencies for Effective Competition Regimes in Select West African Countries’ (also referred to as 7Up4 Project) with the support of the Department for International Development (DFID), UK; the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sweden would be implemented over a period of twenty four months (2 years) in seven countries in the region, viz. – Burkina Faso, The Gambia, Ghana, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo.

Through the 7Up4 project, CUTS aims to raise the profile of competition at the national (project countries) and the regional levels in West Africa. The project would highlight the relevance and need for an effective competition regime for economic development and poverty reduction in select West African countries/region, and therefore set in motion the process of evolution and implementation of competition regimes, and enable them to respond appropriately.

June 2008 to December 2010
