The enactment of a state-of-the-art competition law – the Competition Act 2010 (the Act) – is in itself a stepping-stone towards achieving economic efficiency and creating a level playing field for healthy competition.

The law is, on all counts, in accord with international best practices and conforms to the recommendations of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and other international bodies.
