Reducing Market Distortions for a More Prosperous Ukraine : Proposals for Market Regulation, Competition Policy, and Institutional Reform (English)

In Ukraine, the government’s economic interventions have a major influence on market outcomes. The propensity of SOEs and politically connected firms in concentrated markets to lobby for regulatory protections and other policy-based advantages underscores the importance of mainstreaming the principle of competitive neutrality in government interventions. Even relatively minor distortions or barriers imposed in specific sectors can substantially impact market dynamics, especially in markets that are not naturally conducive to contestation. To address these challenges, this report proposes measures to improve Ukraine’s regulatory framework, institutional arrangements, and enforcement mechanisms within the context of a national competition policy.
