As part of its ongoing mission to create awareness of the Competition Act 2010, the Competition Commission has established a road show on competition law.

The commission has organised seminars in 20 major cities in Pakistan's four provinces to help stakeholders to understand the importance of competition law for the improvement of business and the economy.

According to the commission's website, a Competition Compliance Code has been established to ascertain what companies and their employees might be doing wrong and to assist companies in establishing processes and procedures for training and monitoring their employees to ensure improved compliance with the Competition Act.

The commission aims to help companies to improve their business practices, which in turn will create fairness for all businesses to compete, innovate and become profitable, and thus help to improve the economy.

Participation in the seminars is free of charge and open to all businesses.
