Abstract

The development of a robust competition regime that ensures effective implementation of competition policy principles and promotes creation of a healthy competition culture depends on several factors. Primarily, it demands ‘optimally designed’ institutions. The South Asian block depicts a wide array of challenges and opportunities in this regard, and we attempt to offer an in-depth analysis into the designs of competition authorities in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. From this, an important stage-specific ‘framework of challenges and opportunities’ emerges and is presented to sensitize emerging jurisdictions about the general nature of obstacles and help identify possible focus areas for design optimisation.
