Office of International Affairs
The Office of International Affairs (OIA) was established as the focal coordinating point to liaise with UNCTAD, OECD , and the International Competition Network (ICN). In addition, the Office is responsible for exploring bilateral relations with competition agencies and with donor agencies for possible technical assistance. In essence, the Office is the communications focal point for all international activities.
The OIA is currently involved in two ICN working groups, specifically in the working groups on cartels and mergers. It also contributes to the workings of OECD and UNCTAD. The Office also handles the liaison and cooperation relationships with other competition agencies in the world, be it on a bilateral or regional basis.
