ESCWA is participating in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) annual Global Competition Forum, which brings together competition officials from more than 110 authorities and organizations worldwide each year.

The 2023 forum focuses on: the shift from globalization to regionalization, alternatives to leniency programs, the application of economic evidence in cartel cases, and conducting ex-post assessments of merger remedies.

ESCWA, partnering with United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and OECD, is organizing a side session where they are sharing important competition-related developments that have occurred since the fourth Arab Competition Forum. The session includes updates and proposals for the Fifth Arab Competition Forum, which will be organized by ESCWA in Tunisia in May 2024.  

The session also includes interventions by the organizations on their most prominent work in the Arab region in the field of competition and discussions by competition authorities on their latest achievements.
