Abstract: The paper investigates legal aspects and practical measures undertaken by the CIS countries in the framework of competition law and policy and assesses the experience gained so far in the process of implementation and enforcement of competition laws and related legislation. In particular, it focuses on the efforts of CIS competition authorities to prohibit restrictive business practices of enterprises and anticompetitive actions of government agencies. The paper contains four chapters. Chapter I looks at issues related to the cooperation process among CIS competition authorities and shows the results achieved over the last decade. Chapter II is devoted to the main provisions of CIS national competition laws and provides examples of prevention and elimination of restrictive business practices. Chapter III looks at the legal basis and practical activities of CIS antimonopoly authorities to prevent anticompetitive behaviour by government agencies. Chapter IV discusses the related areas of regulation: unfair competition, demonopolization and liberalization of trade and investment regimes. In light of the above, the author offers some conclusions and recommendations for future work in the area of competition in CIS countries, emphasizing the importance of transparency of competition regulation in those countries as well as the need for technical assistance programmes and related activities to assist them in creating a homogeneous competitive environment and their integration into the world economy.
