Abstract

The issue of addressing cross-border competition enforcement has recently come into sharp focus. In order to address cross-border competition enforcement, Africa has established a number of regional competition regimes which presents a number of opportunities and challenges. This paper focuses on the COMESA Competition Commission (CCC) and the EAC Competition Authority (EACCA). It examines regional development of competition regimes, the opportunities and challenges on cross-border enforcement within these two competition regimes. It recommends that considering the time and intensive resources involved in investigating cross-border anti-competitive practices, there is the overarching need for enhanced co-operation between the regional and domestic competition regimes.
