ICN-WBG Competition Advocacy Contest 2019-2020


The International Competition Network (ICN) and the World Bank Group are pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 – 2020 Competition Advocacy Contest. This contest aims to highlight the key role competition agencies, sector regulators and other governmental bodies or non-governmental organizations play in promoting competition by showcasing their advocacy success stories.

As defined by the ICN, competition advocacy refers to activities that promote a competitive environment through non-enforcement mechanisms, such as building relationships with government entities, increasing public awareness of competition’s benefits and identifying and removing anti-competitive policies and regulations.
