Institutional autonomy and enforcement of competition law: The case of Ethiopia
Author(s): Mezgebu Abye Zewdu
Abstract: As we have different countries in the world, we have also different kinds of institutions with regard to the enforcement of the competition laws of the respective countries. Ethiopia is not also an exception to this fact and has her own institutions at federal and regional level such as TCCPPA, courts, Tribunals or bureau to enforce her competition law. Hence the main purpose of this paper is to analyze, criticize and check whether the Ethiopian institutions which are established under the Ethiopian Competition law are autonomous or not with regard to enforcement of competition law. However there are many problems regarding the autonomy of such institutions in Ethiopia such as executive interference, not having their own fund and other related problems. Hence this paper concludes that Ethiopia is expected to revise her competition law to secure the autonomous of the institutions.
