Egypt: Cairo opens new competition-focused training center

 |  November 21, 2018

In a move to improve the knowledge base of competition agencies in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, UNCTAD (the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development) and Egypt’s Competition Authority launched a regional training center for Competition in Cairo, Egypt in November.

Straight after launching, the center hosted its first set of training on International Competition Law and Compliance.

“There is a regional need for a common understanding of what competition is and how to enforce it,” said Teresa Moreira, UNCTAD’s head of competition and consumer policies.

“The new UNCTAD MENA Competition Training Centre is a milestone. It will not only serve as a platform for learning, but also regional integration and regular exchange between competitions authorities in seven countries.”

Representatives from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, and the State of Palestine will benefit from the training on competition law and economic issues.
