The Mexican Federal Economic Competition Commission (COFECE) is honored to host the 2016 ICN Advocacy Workshop, which will be held in Mexico City on November 3rd and 4th.
The 2016 Advocacy Workshop is the fourth edition in a series of workshops aimed at providing training and experience sharing among ICN members on advocacy efforts. This year, the workshop will focus on how to design effective advocacy strategies when communicating and disseminating competition principles within society, businesses and policy-makers. Moreover, the workshop also represents a vehicle for presenting the AWG’s past, present and future work products and showcasing their usefulness for all member agencies.
During the workshop, discussions will focus on different topics such as advocacy strategies for public procurement, how to explain the benefits of competition to the general public and best practices for engaging in market studies. The workshop will combine both plenary sessions and practical discussions of hypothetical cases to ensure a strong participation by attendees.
In addition to ICN member agencies, Non-Governmental Advisors (NGAs) will be invited to participate in selected parts of the workshop.
COFECE looks forward to welcoming you at the workshop in November 2016.
On behalf of the AWG co-chairs,
Alejandra Palacios Prieto,
