The Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC) will hold the 23rd training course for developing countries on competition law and policy from July 24th to August 10th in Tokyo and Kobe, in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

In recent years, many developing countries have introduced competition laws or enhanced their law enforcement. Under such circumstances, this training course provides officials in competition and competition-related agencies with the opportunity to obtain the knowledge and expertise on Japanese competition law and policy, so as to help their efforts for achieving effective law enforcement; reviewing the existing competition laws and policies; and introducing/amending competition laws, and thereby to promote competitive environments in the developing countries.

The JFTC, in cooperation with JICA, has implemented the training course since 1994 in response to the request from the governments of the developing countries.
