Part of the "European Economic Interaction and Integration Workshop Papers" series, this book examines the role of competition in economic transition and integration, looking at examples in history such as Japan's postwar industrial policy and Czechoslovakia's competition policies. So far, in the countries of Central and East Europe, and of the former USSR, privatization of state enterprises has failed to bring about a more responsive, more competitive behaviour of these firms. It is recognized that various elements of competition - privatization, breaking down of monopolies, trade liberalization, strengthening of small- and medium-sized competitors, and institutional requirements - should be implemented simultaneously.
