This event is the second joint Competition Forum organized under the cooperation agreement between the UN-ESCWA, UNCTAD and the OECD, which aims to help strengthen competition law and policy across the Arab region.

The goal of this event is to build on the momentum of the first Competition Forum, which was held in January 2020, and to develop a regional multi-stakeholder platform that facilitates the coordination and implementation of competition-related initiatives both at the national and regional level. In this event, Arab countries will discuss their latest competition developments, reforms, and measures taken during the COVID-19 pandemic. Competition authorities from different parts of the world will present best practices regarding institutional design, competition law and policy, and effective enforcement.

Furthermore, regional and international organizations will present their latest work and introduce their projects that are targeted towards Arab countries. In the final session, all participants will work together to identify best practices and agree on an action plan for the near future.
