Trade and Competition From Doha to Cancun (Complete Edition - ISBN 9264102787)
The May 2003 OECD Joint Global Forum on Trade and Competition brought together experts and officials from economies at all levels of development. Against the backdrop of an increasingly globalised economy, the interface between these two policy domains is receiving growing attention. With the issue of a possible multilateral framework on trade and competition on the agenda for the WTO Ministerial Conference in Cancun, this Global Forum presented a timely occasion to explore some of the complex issues arising at the trade and competition interface.
This publication presents a synthesis of recent work of the OECD Joint Group on Trade and Competition, which served as the basis for discussions at the Global Forum. It also contains a report of those discussions prepared by Dr. Simon Evenett of the World Trade Institute. This book is structured around a number of key themes, including capacity building, combatting hard core cartels, co-operation between competition authorities and core principles for a multilateral framework. It provides unique insights on national experiences and current thinking in the trade and competition debate.
The report is part of the OECD's ongoing co-operation with non-member economies around the world.
