Abstract

The recent enactment of the 'Ley de Control y Regulación del Poder del Mercado' (Law on Control and Regulation of Market Power) has drawn divergent reactions from commentators within and without Ecuador. While a domestic antitrust regime has long been anticipated in Ecuador, President Rafael Correa’s conflicts with the private media and the judiciary call into question the Law’s intended effect and fair enforcement.

Keywords: Ecuador, anti-monopoly, antitrust, competition
