The establishment of the "Competition Day" will increase the awareness of the necessity for a loyal competitive environment, but also the role and place of competition in a free market economy, a good competition culture can improve the economic performance of a state, open up business opportunities to its citizens and reduce the cost of goods and services.
At the same time, the establishment of the "Competition Day" will align Republic of Moldova to good international practices and will allow to discuss and highlight in society the issues of competition at a national level, as well as to promote competition policies.
