The Complex

  • The complex main functions are to:
    • Strengthen the enabling environment for private sector [and financial sector] development conducive to inclusive growth and sustainable development,
    • Support the development of reliable and sustainable infrastructure, including cities and urban development, and

  • The Division work is carried out in close collaboration with the Transport and Logistics division of the Infrastructure department, the Economic Governance and Agriculture complexes and the regional hubs of the Bank.
The Position

Duties and Responsibilities
Under the general guidance and supervision of the Manager, Trade and Investment Climate Division, the Competition Policy Expert will perform the following duties and responsibilities:
  • Undertake analysis and diagnostics of sector or industry-level market competition constraints, through competition rapid assessment tools and standard competition indicators and the application of quantitative and qualitative analytical tools to evaluate competition issues in client countries;
  • Unearth challenges facing competition in RMCs and propose activities or initiatives to address them;
  • Design action/reform plans and technical assistance programs on competition policy, leading to increased competition based on feasibility analysis (prioritization and sequence) of reforms, such as the elimination/removal of:

    • Rules that discriminate against certain firms and distort the level playing field;
  • Implement pro-competition market regulations and relevant programs and initiatives, including technical assistance on competition policy, through technical advice, policy dialogue and support to client countries;
  • Mainstream the principles of competition policy within the Bank’s private sector programs and investments to allow for efficient entry and avoid distortions to the playing field;
  • Support and manage projects with competition policy components, with a focus on removing sector-specific constraints to the development of competition in sectors concerned (e.g. agribusiness, infrastructure, finance);
  • Undertake knowledge generation and dissemination of best practice on competition policies across countries and regions, including indicators and statistics on the status of competition at economy and industry level;
  • Contribute to the development of collaborative partnerships with external partners and other Bank teams involved in promoting competition in client countries and contribute to a coherent strategy across teams for the benefit of the client country;
  • Facilitate policy dialogue amongst national stakeholders (private and public) as well as authorities (regulatory institution) in view of promoting effective competition amongst operators;
  • Contribute to the development of monitoring and evaluation indicators for competition interventions as well as analyse the impact of competition policy interventions. This includes advising regional and sectoral colleagues on the competition dimension of their reform programs and ensuring competition issues are adequately captured by the product-specific M&E systems.
