JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SOUTH Africa has joined the international community in commemorating World Competition Day.
It has joined a coalition of competition authorities and civil society organisations to mark the event.
First marked in 1980, World Competition Day highlights the potential benefits from an effectively implemented competition regime and calls on consumers to play their role in making competition regimes work worldwide.
“There is a general recognition across jurisdictions worldwide of the importance of competition law for both economic growth and inclusivity,” says SA Commissioner of the Competition Commission, Tembinkosi Bonakele.
He added that the Commission will embark on a national advocacy road show in 2017 and hopes to engage with stakeholders on competition related barriers which have a negative impact on investment, productivity, innovation and entrepreneurship, amongst many other relevant issues.
