Protecting competition in Montenegro

29 Jan 2018

Competition is crucial to developing healthy and productive markets, strengthening the private sector, reducing poverty and promoting economic growth. However, it can be challenging to develop effective competition policy, especially in transition countries. In Montenegro, judges are hampered by insufficient knowledge of competition law, limited experience with related cases, and a lack of training.

IDLO, in partnership with EBRD, is implementing a project that aims to strengthen the capacity of Montenegrin judges and case handlers within the Montenegro Agency for the Protection of Competition to deal with competition cases more effectively, and raise awareness of Montenegrin competition policy through training, communication and institutional support.
