The CA marks World Competition Day on Monday

The Competition Authority (CA) will on Monday December 5, 2016, join the rest of the world to celebrate World Competition Day (WCD).

Every fifth day of December, civil society organisations, consumer and competition agencies celebrate World Competition Day under a chosen theme. This year, the WCD theme is ’Competition and Intellectual Property Rights’.  As part of the festivities to mark this year’s celebrations, the CA will host a panel discussion with participants from the CA which is the competition regulatory body, the Companies and Intellectual Property Authority (CIPA), which is the custodian of intellectual property rights, and the Copyright Society of Botswana (COSBOTS, which deals with copyright issues.

The panel discussion is likely to generate some interesting debates particularly on the intersection of intellectual property rights and competition, and the likely benefits that should accrue to originators of copyrights and intellectual property. Still at the same occasion, the Chairperson of the Competition Commission, Dr Onkemetse Tshosa will officially launch the Competition Authority’ 2015/16 Annual Report to members of the press.
