On 20th July 2010, the Competition Commission of Mauritius, (CCM), will host a workshop on “Competition Policy in Mauritius” at Sugar Beach Resort.

The Honourable Yatin Varma, Attorney-General , will open the ceremony and the Mr Satyajit Boolell, Director Public Prosecution will present on the Competition Act 2007.

The Keynote speaker will be Dr Frédéric Jenny, Judge at the Cour de Cassation and Chairman of the OECD Competition Committee. Dr Frédéric Jenny is one of the leading world authorities on competition policy. He is a respected academic economist who also sits as a judge and as a decision-maker on the Board of the OFT, the UK competition agency. He was closely involved in the establishment of what is now Autorité de la Concurrence in France and served as its Vice-President from 1993 to 2004. Dr Frédéric Jenny is being hosted by the Competition Commission of Mauritius for a three-day visit. During this time, as well as the workshop, he will conduct seminars for CCM staff and meet justices of the Supreme Court to help them prepare for their appeal role.

The workshop will also provide for a panel discussion on selected topics on competition policy, with expert speakers, including Pierre Dinan, Sanjeev Ghurburrun, Raj Makoond, and Dr Frédéric Jenny.

John Davies, Executive Director of the CCM said yesterday “I am delighted to have such a prestigious guest as Dr Frédéric Jenny speaking at this workshop. As a world authority on competition policy he will greatly enhance our understanding of competition issues, we are looking forward to benefiting from his wide ranging knowledge and experience.”

“This workshop is perfectly timed, as the CCM has recently released its first report and competition policy is coming into focus in Mauritius. I therefore expect and hope for lively debate on the topic.”
