The regional conference would be held in the Hilton Addis Ababa on 27-28 March 2006, and would offer an opportunity to the project partners to present their research findings before an august gathering of international experts and practitioners from within the region and outside.

  • Familiarise with international best practices (especially in Developing and Least Developed countries) in competition policy and law implementation, and the challenges encountered therein; and
  • Understand various aspects of competition law enforcement.
