UNCTAD-UNESCAP ASEAN Regional Policy Dialogue: The Role of Competition Policy in Supporting MSMEs Economic Recovery in the Post COVID19 Crisis

02 March 2021
09:00 - 12:00 hrs. Geneva time

UNCTAD and UN-ESCAP have joined forces in responding to the COVID-19 crisis by engaging in a technical cooperation project on SMEs and Competition law and policy.

Within this project, UNCTAD and UN-ESCAP are holding in cooperation with the ASEAN Secretariat a regional dialogue on the role of Competition Policy in supporting the economic recovery of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) post COVID-19. This event will provide an opportunity to present and discuss: an UNCTAD report on how COVID-19 Affects MSME access to markets and competition; an UN-ESCAP Regional Report entitled, "The Role of Competition Policy in Strengthening the Business Environment for MSMEs in the ASEAN Region," and the preliminary findings of an UNCTAD study on the analysis of the impact of COVID-19 on MSMEs in Thailand from competition policy and market access perspectives. This interactive event will prioritise sharing experiences and best practices that have emerged during this crisis among representatives and officials of government MSME bodies, as well as competition agency representatives. This event also benefits from the cooperation of Taylor's University. This is an invitation-only event.

A summary of proceedings of the event will be posted online by ESCAP.
