CCCS is particularly active in the ASEAN Experts Group on Competition (AEGC) to promote cooperation and capacity building efforts in the region. It currently chairs the AEGC Work Group on Developing Strategy and Tools for Regional Advocacy. The objective of the Work Group is to promote awareness in ASEAN on the contribution of competition policy and law to economic development and facilitate the exchange of experiences and implementation of projects among ASEAN Member States on competition advocacy.
In this regard, CCCS led the development of a regional web portal to provide one-stop information on developments on competition policy and law in ASEAN and to serve as a platform for AEGC members to interact and share information. To complement the web portal, a set of competition advocacy collaterals in the form of a brochure and pamphlet were also developed to raise awareness among the general public on competition policy and law in the region. Through the use of simple language, the collaterals aim to educate businesses and consumers in ASEAN on key principles of competition policy and law, particularly with regards to its application in the region.
CCCS has also hosted relevant competition workshops to promote exchange of experiences by competition authorities around the world, as well as to give talks or present at workshops/conferences hosted by foreign competition authorities.
