The Myan­mar Com­pe­ti­tion Com­mis­sion re­ceived ten complaints of un­fair com­pe­ti­tion in the lo­cal mar­ket in a year, the state-run newspaper The Global New Light of Myan­mar re­ported cit­ing Ko Ko Lay, Deputy Director-Gen­eral of the Trade De­part­ment, Min­istry of Com­merce, who is also re­spon­si­ble for the com­mis­sion. He made the re­marks at a press con­fer­ence held by the com­mis­sion on De­cem­ber 27 at the De­part­ment of Trade, Ex­port/ Im­port of­fice (Yan­gon branch). “Since its for­ma­tion on 31 Oc­to­ber, 2018, the com­pe­ti­tion com­mis­sion has re­ceived ten let­ters of com­plaint. Among them, four have been al­ready re­solved whereas the re­main­ing six cases are un­der process. An investigat­ion com­mit­tee has been formed to look into any un­fair com­pe­ti­tion in the mar­ket,” he was quoted as say­ing. “Cur­rently, two complaints have been com­pletely re­solved. These are con­cerned with sell­ing of me­dia sup­ply and open­ing of an education cen­ter. The re­main­ing cases are con­cerned with dig­ging of the ground and they are al­ready un­der investigat­ion. A case in­volv­ing trans­porta­tion will be ne­go­ti­ated through the re­gional au­thor­i­ties. We will look into other re­main­ing cases by our­selves,” he said. The com­mis­sion’s vice chair­per­son Than Maung said, “In view of the de­vel­op­ment of the na­tion’s econ­omy, the en­trepreneur­s’ role is very im­por­tant in the sense that they par­tic­i­pate in en­sur­ing free and fair com­pe­ti­tion among busi­nesses.”
