Some laws and regulations in the Philippines substantially prevent, restrict, or lessen competition in the market. This project aims to improve the legislative and regulatory environment to promote market competition. Project activities include: (i) preparation of a manual that provides detailed guidance to government agencies on how to systematically review existing and proposed legislation, (ii) pilot-testing of the manual in three (3) government agencies, and (iii) the conduct of an international workshop in the Philippines to share the Project outputs and pilot-test results with regulatory and competition agencies in the APEC region, relevant APEC fora and sub-fora, and other stakeholders. All activities were led by a consultant in collaboration with an inter-agency technical working group. This publication details the key results and outcomes from the project.
