Economic Research Bureau

The Economic Research Bureau is headed by the Chief Economist, Dr. Liberty Mncube. The Bureau is largely composed of economists and is closely involved with the day-to-day work of case teams, providing economic guidance and methodological assistance in complex cases and competition policy issues.  The Bureau also provides economic expert testimony to the Tribunal on behalf of the Commission on a case-by-case basis. The key operational responsibilities of the Bureau are to:

  • ensure research on sectors and policy issues identified by the Commission as priority areas;
  • ensure sound economic analysis for enforcement cases, merger cases and market enquiries;
  • provide economic expert testimony to the Tribunal on behalf of the Commission

The Bureau acts as a focus for economic debate within Commission. In particular, the Division contributes to the training plan of the Commission through capacity building courses and seminars, ensures research on studies of a general economic nature such as impact assessments.
