As the agency enters its second century, it continues to apply a full range of tools to ensure that markets work to the benefit of consumers. This includes robust competition law enforcement to address anti-competitive business practices,1 advocacy and studies that enhance its expertise to promote competition and protect consumers, and work with sister competition agencies in the Americas and around the world to ensure a globally interoperative approach to competition law and policy.
