From the Paper:

"In general, competitive markets provide strong incentives for achieving economic efficiency. Market forces ensure that goods consumers want are produced in the quantities they want, using the most efficient production methods and are marketed and distributed to consumers who wish to purchase them in the most efficient means possible. In addition, competitive market forces provide incentives for efficient levels of investment in discovering new production technologies, new production processes and new products. Also, competition law/policy would ensure that consumers will enjoy greater benefits in terms of wider choices and better quality goods and services at competitive prices. In creating these competition policies, some format or elements are present in these. These act as the policies blue print which allows for more uniform policies among countries. Also, these elements are considered to be the main formula for making an effective list of policies of a country. An effective competition policy must have the following elements: policy towards monopoly; policy towards mergers; policy towards restrictive and anti-competitive practices; policy towards state entry barriers; and policy towards consumer protection."
