Nicaragua: National Institution for the Promotion of Competition

21 August 2014

Procompetencia has now completed its fifth year. During this time, Procompetencia has been established as a public law institution in Nicaragua. The organisation of the institution began from the most elementary level, from the need to find a building and purchase furniture and stationery, to the most complex aspects, such as the recruitment and selection of employees. All of the relevant civil servants were trained in competition policy and procedural rules, and as a part of this process, Procompetencia published procedural guides and complaint guidelines for the economic agents.
