The mandate of the COMESA Competition Commission (Commission) is to promote and encourage competition by preventing and prohibiting anti-competitive conduct by market players which deter the efficient operations of markets, partition the Common Market and erode consumer welfare. The Commission is of the conviction that access to and dissemination of information on Competition matters is essential to enhance the compliance to the Regulations and detection of infringements. The role of the Media in this endeavor cannot be overemphasized.


In this respect, the Commission hosted the fifth regional sensitization workshop for Business Reporters on Competition and Trade Developments within COMESA from 25-26 June 2018 in Nairobi, Kenya. The aim of the workshop was not only to provide updates on competition developments and facilitate discussion among the reporters but also to appraise the important developments that are taking place with respect to regional integration, access to information, the role of the media, technology and innovation in the media.
Further, the workshop discussed the relationship between the media and the Commission. The aim of the Commission is also to continue building and strengthening the network of competition journalists in the Common Market and this workshop avails this opportunity.
