Swedish competition authorities react to public actors’ involvement in
private sector activities

29th September 2008


In a press release entitled “Public actors must not compete with private”, the Swedish competition authority has reacted to the government’s proposal for legislation to deal with problems that arise when government agencies and municipalities compete with private. The competition
authority states that it supports the proposed plan, and argue that “the legislation now being prepared by the Government will have a very favorable effect on those businesses – often small local operators – that are currently exposed to the kind of public activities that distort
competition.”

The press release clearly concludes: “Municipalities and other public actors should not be allowed to operate in
functioning markets, since they force out established businesses and obstruct market entry.”
