ECOWAS: Togo now chairs Competition Advisory Committee

(Togo First) - Togo now chairs the Competition Advisory Committee (CAC) of the ECOWAS Regional Competition Authority (ARCC). The country was picked to steer the Committee last week after the ARCC’s 8th session in Lomé.

Togolese Talime Abe is the CAC’s new chairman. He replaces the Nigerian Boladale Adéyinka. 

Abe and his team will focus on implementing the recommendations of the ECOWAS memorandum on consumer protection. The memorandum was validated at the meeting.

The new chairman and his team will also strive to bolster competition across West Africa in line with ARCC's vision. Emphasis will be on regulating restrictive business practices, state aid, mergers, and acquisitions that do not benefit consumers.

A branch of the ECOWAS, the ARCC was set up in 2008. The Competition Authority regulates competition across the ECOWAS.
