Is there a need for the Fair Competition Act? PDF Print
The Fair Competition Act is essential to sustained economic development, because it ensures the effective functioning of markets through the promotion and maintenance of competition and the prohibition of anticompetitive practices in Barbados. The Act also protects consumers, through its prohibition of anticompetitive practices which often result in higher prices, and lower quality goods and services.
