Do other CARICOM countries have competition legislation? PDF Print

Yes. Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and St. Vincent have passed competition legislation. The countries of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States are in the process of establishing a sub-regional competition authority that will enforce harmonised competition legislation. Suriname has completed its legislation and is in the process of enacting it. Belize is receiving technical assistance to complete its fair competition legislation.

Under Chapter Eight of the revised Treaty of Chaguaramas, CARICOM is inaugurating the regional Community Competition Commission on 18 January 2007 in Paramaribo, Suriname. The CCC main objectives will be to:

  • apply the rules of competition in respect of anti-competitive cross border business conduct; and
  • promote and protect competition in the Community and coordinate the implementation of the Community Competition Policy .
