Lear provided technical assistance to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Moldovan Competition Council. The project entailed three phases. Firstly, Lear developed and delivered a training programme for Moldovan Competition Council officials on market investigation and competitive assessment, with a specific focus on the competitive assessment of public procurement. Secondly, Lear assisted the Moldovan Competition Council officials in the delivery of a market inquiry (including the identification of appropriate remedial actions to remove competitive restraints). Thirdly Lear assisted the Moldovan Competition Council in the realization of ad-hoc advocacy initiatives aimed at disseminating the results of the market assessment.
