THEME OF THE SEMINAR
The seminar will focus on objectives of Competition Law as an instrument for accelerating growth through innovation and economic efficiencies thus maximizing consumer welfare by offering better products at lower prices. Competition is irrefutably beneficial for every market participant. Competitive markets give consumers wider choice and lower prices. It gives sellers stronger incentives to minimize their costs through innovation and other productivity enhancing techniques. This enables firms to pass on cost savings to the customers and offer better products and greater choice at lower prices. There is a need to achieve the objectives of Competition Act, 2002 by prohibiting anti-competition agreements and practices that harm free trade and competition; preventing abuse of dominant position and anti- competitive practices that lead to such a dominant position and; regulating mergers and acquisitions.
