Capacity Building for the Albanian Competition Authority

Lear is implementing a technical assistance project funded by the EBRD for the Albanian Competition Authority (“ACA”). The project aims at strengthening ACA’s advocacy role in the country as well as the skills and competencies of its officials and case handlers, through the following activities: (1) preparation and promotion of a long-term strategy for “Competition Advocacy and Communication”; (2) preparation and delivery of three training programmes on the use of STATA for competition analysis, competition law enforcement (i.e. application of Articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty of Functioning of the European Union), and merger analysis; and (3) organization of study visits for officials and staff members of the ACA to allow them to get acquainted with the procedures implemented in other national competition authorities in Europe, and to establish a platform for future experience exchange and collaboration.
