The Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC) will hold the 21th training course for developing countries on competition law and policy from August 20th to September 18th in Tokyo and Kobe, in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

In recent years, many developing countries have introduced competition legislations or enhanced their law enforcements. 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 legislations, 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.
