Creating the Framework for a Merger Review

Lear assisted the Planning Institute of Jamaica. The project was financed by the World Bank Group. The main objectives of this assignment were the following: to develop and draft new merger provisions in the Fair Competition Act along with its supporting regulations as required; to ensure that the proposals reflect efficiency of merger control policy and control of unwarranted concentration of economic power so that the costs for businesses are proportionate to the expected benefits and investments in Jamaica; to conduct training for the staff of Planning Institute of Jamaica and relevant stakeholders in mergers and acquisitions to support the implementation of the proposed amendments to the Fair Competition Act, regulations and guidelines.
