International Competition System

The AdC is active on the international stage both multilaterally and bilaterally.


The AdC cooperates multilaterally through various international organisations, including the OECD and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

The AdC also participates in international cooperation fora, such as the International Competition Network (ICN), the Lusophone Competition Network and the Ibero-American Competition Network.

Bilaterally, the AdC cooperates with other competition agencies through Technical Cooperation Agreements, bilateral dialogue and exchange, and other initiatives of mutual interest.
