Increasing the Effectiveness of Competition Advocacy

Lear provided technical assistance to the Jamaican Fair Trading Commission, the local competition agency, to increase the effectiveness of competition advocacy in the country. The main milestones of the projects were: to review the international best practices and to assess the effectiveness of the Fair Trading Commission’s advocacy interventions; to propose recommendations and outline appropriate advocacy tools and strategies as well as a well-sequenced Implementation Plan that the Jamaican Fair Trading Commission may implement in order to increase the likelihood that its opinions and other interventions are accepted/implemented; to build capacity within the Jamaican Fair Trading Commission on the relevant competition advocacy tools to support the implementation of the proposed recommendations.
