Organized by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the meetings commenced on July 3, and concluded on July 6.

The event represented a valuable opportunity to gather competition experts from all over the world to delve into various significant topics such as food markets, digital markets, and experiences of different nations in promoting competition within these sectors.

The participants reviewed the contributions of effective enforcement of competition laws and policies to reducing poverty levels and addressing any monopolistic activities that may enhance the unavailability of goods society’s segments at reasonable prices.
