This chapter presents an overview of the application of competition law in regional trade agreements (RTA). It explains that competition law became a common element of bilateral and regional trade agreements because private business conduct, if left unregulated, can distort and defeat the intended effects of trade agreements. However, competition provisions are usually not consistent in their scope and terms, and they often include important exemptions from competition regimes.
