Posted by D. Daniel Sokol
Obinne Obiefuna, University of Essex - School of Law, analyzes Technology Transfer, Competition Law and Developing Countries : A Means of Loosening the Dependency Ties.
ABSTRACT: This paper discusses the interaction between transfer of technology and competition law in a developing economy and how these two concepts will impact the developing economies positively to set them along a positive journey to enable them develop self sufficiency. The aim also is to elucidate how technology transfer and competition law can aid in the fight against the inequalities between the people in developed countries and people in the underdeveloped country. The paper equally argues that the above methods will encourage self reliance, equal partnership and trading in the international global market which is a better form of interaction for developing countries with their developed counterparts than aids and grants.
