The Serbian Competition Authority and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) have launched an initiative to establish a regional competition forum.
The forum will include all Western Balkan states (Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania) and two EU member states (Slovenia and Croatia). It will therefore include all of former Yugoslavia plus Albania.
The Serbian Competition Authority and the EBRD have enlisted the Centre for Liberal-Democratic Studies (CLDS) as a consultant to help design, implement and manage the forum's operations. The CLDS will cooperate directly with the Serbian Competition Authority and the EBRD when designing the forum's structure and management scheme.
