As the economies get increasingly open, liberal and market-oriented, competition between market players is inevitable. With enterprises getting increasingly profit-oriented, it is important to regulate unfair competition and enhance the capacity of producers and distributors. With this in mind the Competition Promotion and Market Protection Act, 2063 (2007) was enacted in 2007. In addition to the local laws, Nepal is also signatory to various treaties and conventions under which Nepal is under an obligation to prevent unfair competition.
