Tunisia and Somalia officially join COMESA


The COMESA Competition Commission (CCC) has released a notice confirming that the Republic of Tunisia and the Federal Republic of Somalia have been admitted as Member States of COMESA. Accordingly, the COMESA Competition Regulations of 2004, and its accompanying rules, shall be enforceable in Tunisia and Somalia with immediate effect. A copy of the notice can be accessed here.

COMESA now comprises 21 Member States (see map below) and this latest development demonstrates the continuing expansion of competition law across Africa.
