Latin steps

OECD Observer

The OECD and the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) have launched a partnership to promote competition law and policy and encourage greater competitiveness in Latin American economies.

The two organisations will join forces to promote competitive markets in the region as a key element in boosting economic growth, employment, innovation and living standards.

The first event under the new programme will be a Latin American Competition Forum in Paris on 7-8 April 2003. The Forum will feature a peer review of Chile's competition institutions as well as discussions of the impact of foreign direct investment on competition in key infrastructure sectors such as electricity, telecommunications and financial services.
