DFID - ODI Research Project: Measuring the Economic Benefits of Competition - 2009

Project Description:

Assignments were carried out in five countries (Kenya, Zambia, Ghana, Vietnam and Pakistan) and four markets (sugar, beer, cement and mobile phones) were chosen as the focus of analysis. In 2009 these four markets were analysed in each country.

For each country, the analysis looked at: the policy context and business environment, the degree of competition in the market, market outcomes. The team collected the necessary data and information on each market, interviews key consultative people and undertook economic analysis and drafts the country report.
