CLDP Lead Competition Webinar on Abuse of Dominance

CLDP, in coordination with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and Armenia’s State Commission for the Protection of Economic Competition (SCPEC) held a capacity building webinar focused on best practices in identifying and preventing abuse of dominance. The webinar was led by attorneys and subject matter experts from the FTC and featured presentations, real and hypothetical case-studies, and examples from real practice. Preventing abuse of dominance is a critical aspect of competition enforcement in Armenia due to high levels of concentration in major sectors of the economy. These high levels of concentration can lead to exploitative and exclusionary conduct by dominant undertakings that ultimately harms consumers and competition. The overall aim of the project is to provide technical assistance to the SCPEC to eliminate barriers to market entry, stimulate investment by promoting competition, and strengthen anti-monopoly mechanisms. This webinar is part of a multi-phase effort by CLDP to assist the SCPEC and sectoral regulators in Armenia with combating anticompetitive behavior.
