Egypt Chapter – Merger Control Review edited by Ilene Knable Gotts

No merger control or approval regulation currently exists in Egypt.2 Therefore, the focus of this chapter will not be the peculiarities of Egypt's past experience but rather the prospective peculiarities of the Egyptian merger control framework.

In order to achieve this without fundamentally altering the proposed structure of this review, Section I shall present a brief description of the current Egyptian competition law and of the enforcement agency in charge of enforcing the competition law provisions; Section II shall include an analysis of the latest developments as far as the competition policy and the political and economic reality in Egypt are concerned; Section III shall include an analysis of the merger and acquisition notification regulation currently in place, the reason for its actual scope and the possible paths of evolution; Section IV will constitute the bulk of this chapter and will contain a comparative analysis of the various factors that lead to the development of competition policy in general with an emphasis when possible on merger control in different jurisdictions and whether such contributing factors exist or not in the current Egyptian political and socio-economic landscape. The last section will naturally discuss the conclusions drawn from the overall analysis and the prospects of Egyptian competition policymaking in light of the fundamental political changes brought upon by the January 2011 revolution.
