MyCC Signs MoU with Brickfields Asia College, Monash University Malaysia and the Malaysian Institute of Economic Research (MIER)
The Malaysia Competition Commission ("MyCC") signed three Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with Brickfields Asia College, Monash University Malaysia and the Malaysian Institute of Economic Research (MIER).
The main aim of the MoU with the public institutions and the private sector is to ensure that subjects or modules of competition law can be developed in the universities involved. In addition, it is also a platform for students at participating universities to get the opportunity to do internships at the Commission to produce more experts in the field of competition law in Malaysia. Meanwhile, the agreement between MyCC and MIER is seen as giving both agencies a chance to share their expertise in the field of economic and policy research with the government.
The signing of the MoU is expected to develop educational activities, research, and advocacy programs between the Commission and its MoU partners while strengthening the implementation of Competition Act 2010 to better protect healthy competition for businesses and consumers.
