Professor Tchapga on competition legislation in a future regionally integrated Africa
AAT’s own contributing author and Primerio consultant, Professor Flavien TCHAPGA has drafted a paper for the African Economic Conference in Johannesburg. The conference is organized each year by AfdB, UNECA & UNDP.
We are proud to present his paper here (written in French), which is entitled “Perspective de la régulation concurrentielle des marchés dans la future zone de libre échange continentale en Afrique : Enjeux et défis“.
The concise and eminently readable expose deals with the current and proposed competition regulation in the growing African free-trade area. It provides a comprehensive overview of, and new insights into, the ‘spaghetti bowl’ of African regional integration and the necessary (yet little developed) competition regulation that must go along with it.
We invite our readership, especially the francophone and francophile contingent, to download and peruse Professor Tchapga’s work. His prior related work, also published here, has been on developing effective competition policies in Africa and on the inherent tension this effort faces, focused on the member countries of CEMAC and WAEMU.
