FICSerbia has taken all necessary steps towards the full implementation of the Law on Protection of Competition. In order to further improve the efficiency of competition policy enforcement in Serbia, it is necessary to secure the expansion of capacities of the Commission for Protection of Competition – states one of the commentaries provided by experts of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in its regular report on competitiveness in South East Europe.

This publication provides a comprehensive assessment of economic performances and regional competitiveness in 17 fields, aimed to assist the Western Balkans countries in creating improved development policies. In the course of drafting this assessment, from early 2016 to the beginning of 2018, the OECD has cooperated with SEE countries, specifically with Serbia, Albania, BiH, Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, in order to secure a facts-based analysis, which is a prerequisite for delivering support in the structural reform process.

The Commission for Protection of Competition of the Republic of Serbia took an active role in drafting this document.
