THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA MINISTRY OF TRADE, INDUSTRY AND COOPERATIVES National Competition and Consumer Protection Policy Regulated Competition for Efficiency and Enhanced Consumer Welfare Ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives Government maintains a liberal trade policy; and commits to creating opportunities for equal participation in trade, providing an enabling environment for private sector growth, competitiveness and development. One of the key policy actions Government undertakes to implement in the course of implementing the National Trade Policy is to "formulate and implement specific sectoral policies necessary for promoting efficiency, competitiveness and consumer welfare in a liberal environment. Government is cognizant of the benefits of economic growth and development emanating from the liberalization policy; hence the need to have such benefits distributed to producers and consumers by ensuring a market that is free of distortions, uncompetitive practices and consumer exploitation. It is in this context that the National Competition and Consumer Protection Policy has been developed. The National Competition and Consumer Protection Policy is cognizant of the country's Vision 2040, National Development Plan, National Trade Policy, and other sectoral policies and strategies aimed at increasing incomes, creating wealth and ensuring sustainable development. Furthermore, the Policy commits government to implement obligations and commitments at the EAC, COMESA and WTO on consumer protection and competition Fair competition stimulates innovation, productivity, creates possibilities for Micro small and medium sized enterprises to flourish, eliminates market barriers and hence increases a country's competitiveness and attraction to investment. Consumer protection on the other hand, fosters consumer's welfare through protection of their rights and guarding them against exploitation.
