Competition Reviews

The Inter-American Development Bank and the OECD have collaborated on a series of reviews of competition law and policy regimes in Latin America since 2003.

Most of these reviews were performed during the meetings of the forum which are held every year in a different country in Latin America and the Caribbean.

See all reviews and ongoing projects on this page.
