Competition Policy and Development Forums 2007 and 2008

This grant will support the organization of two high-level forums on competition and development immediately prior to the global conferences of the International Competition Network, to be held in Russia (May 2007) and Japan (April 2008), respectively. The ICN membership consists of national competition authorities from around the world, including an increasing number of developing countries. The IDRC forums will widen the discussion between competition experts; sensitize the participants to development concerns; provide a platform for disseminating the findings of IDRC-supported research on competition; support policy dialogue between developing country policymakers; and encourage competition policy that is compatible with development goals.
