Mohamed Elfar, Queen Mary - University of London explains Enforcement Policy of the Egyptian Competition Law: The Single Economic Criteria.
ABSTRACT: The enforcement policy of the Egyptian Competition Law reveals that there are two varying approaches in relation to the concept of related parties/single economic unit. The first requires for parties to be related, to be active in the same relevant market. This created discrepancies in practice. The second, considers parties to form a single economic unit regardless whether they are engaged in the same market or not. In this respect, this article is intended to explore these policies and to propose recommendations for the way forward.
