February 25, 2016:- The Trinidad and Tobago Fair Trading Commission (TTFTC) hosted a Workshop on ‘the Fundamentals of Competition Law and the use of economic tools in competition law enforcement’ on Thursday 25 February, 2015 at the Ministry’s Head Office in Port-of-Spain. The Workshop, which involved Agencies such as the Telecommunication Authority of Trinidad and Tobago; the Regulated Industries Commission; the Securities Exchange Commission; the Ministry of the Attorney General and the Ministry of Trade and Industry, focussed on the importance of competition law and policy during a period of economic downturn and the challenges in developing a competition culture in a new environment.
In welcoming the participants to the Workshop, Justice Amrika Tiwary-Reddy, Chairperson of the TTFTC stated that
‘the Workshop comes at a particularly crucial time given the importance of competition law and policy to economic development. The decision to invite all Agencies represented here today was strategically thought out since you are charged with the responsibility of administering and enforcing competition policy in Trinidad and Tobago’.
