Competition Law and Policy in El Salvador: A Peer Review

Clark, John
Jan 2008
The OECD has been active in promoting competition policy among countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and formed a partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank to further this aim. The principal feature of this partnership has been the annual Latin American Competition Forum (LACF), at which senior officials from countries in the region discuss, in roundtable fashion, issues of competition policy of interest to them. El Salvador volunteered to be peer reviewed at the sixth LACF meeting, held in Panama, on 10-11 September 2008. This review examines El Salvador's competition law and policy: content and application of the competition law and enforcement structure and practices; the limits of competition policy; and promotes competition advocacy.
