The activities of the network revolve around the objectives of coalition building, networking and capacity building on competition issues, primarily of the civil society organizations, but secondarily of other stakeholder groups. This will be achieved through sharing of experiences and information dissemination projects. The network will work mainly through working groups.
Conceived as a virtual network, The Network works through Working Groups of which two co-chair persons were elected at Geneva on 20th February, 2003 to coordinate the work of three groups: capacity building, advocacy and the preparation of a World Competition Report by 2005.
The network maintains close contact with the ICN, GCF (IBA), UNCTAD, OECD, WTO, World Bank and other such bodies.
CUTS International, based at Jaipur is the temporary secretariat for hosting the virtual communication hub.
