image of Combating Anti-Competitive Practices

This book provides a wide range of examples of the impact of anti-competitive practices and arrangements on developing country suppliers. Anti-competitive practices and market structures undercut export market opportunities and the productive capacities on which developing country businesses depend. The publication focuses on the impact of state monopolies and abuses of dominant positions in infrastructure markets, the impact of anti-competitive practices in the international distribution and retail sector, and the effect of international cartels. The role and response of the private sector is discussed, as well as the scope for enhanced international cooperation to address these issues.

How anti-competitive practices hurt developing country businesses

Much attention has been given to the potential for achieving enhanced prosperity through further expansion of exports of goods and services from developing and transition economies. Increasingly, developing and transition economy businesses aim to achieve growth through exports, whether to other developing economies (South-South trade) or to developed country markets (South-North trade). In many cases, exporters have achieved considerable success. This is certainly true in the emerging economies of East and South Asia; in Latin America; in parts of Africa; and some key transition economies of Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
