Enforcement of Competition Law in CARICOM: Perspectives on Challenges to Meeting Regional and Multilateral Obligations
Posted by D. Daniel Sokol
Delroy Beckford (Jamaica Fair Trading Commission) focuses on Enforcement of Competition Law in CARICOM: Perspectives on Challenges to Meeting Regional and Multilateral Obligations.
ABSTRACT: The focus of this paper is to raise some issues that have implications for coherence between the competition law regimes at the multilateral level, in particular the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) obligations, and that existing at the regional level made operative through the existence of FTAs. The particular FTA addressed here is CARICOM under the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas, although the tentative observations made go beyond this FTA.
