May 17: The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today approved the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Competition Commission of India (CCI) and the Egyptian Competition Authority (ECA).
Implementation Strategy and Targets:
The MoU envisages the promotion and strengthening of cooperation in competition law and policy through the exchange of information, and sharing of best practices as well as through various capacity-building initiatives. The MoU also aims to develop and strengthen linkages between CCI and ECA and learn and emulate each other’s experiences in the enforcement of competition law in their respective jurisdictions through experience sharing and technical cooperation.
The MoU, through the exchange of enforcement initiatives, would enable CCI to emulate and learn from the experience and lessons of its counterpart competition agency in Egypt which would help improve the enforcement of the Competition Act, of 2002 by CCI. The resultant outcomes would benefit consumers at large and promote equity and inclusiveness.
Section 18 of the Competition Act, 2002 permits CCI to enter into any memorandum or arrangement with any agency of any foreign country for the purpose of discharging its duties or performing its functions under the Act. Accordingly, the present proposal relates to the signing of the MoU between CCI and EGA.Disclaimer: We donot claim that the images used as part of the news published are always owned by us.
