It is conventional wisdom that a competition agency must do more than simply enforce its country’s consumer protection and competition law.
This is done through effective advocacy programs, to promote a competitive environment for economic activities and increasing public awareness on the benefits of competition. With the above goals in mind, the Fair Trading Commission publishes adverts in the local media, conducts workshops with various stakeholders and assists actively to enquiries.
These activities contribute to develop, a competition culture, which is perhaps best characterized by the awareness of economic agents and the public at large about competition rules. A competitive market place equates to better quality and wider choice of goods and services, at competitive prices.
The Commission seeks to work in partnership with all stakeholders with the aim of creating a better understanding and enforcement of its Acts.
