dc.description.abstract
This report presents an analysis of competition conditions and market concentration in Haiti. Based on available import data and available information on economic group connections, it also presents a limited analysis of the economic groups and companies that operate in Haiti, with a focus on highly concentrated markets. This analysis found that Haitian markets are constrained by a mix of factors, including operational business risks related to weak competitive conditions; highly concentrated markets which likely result in higher consumer prices; and a concentration of ownership in the most powerful firms, which seem to benefit from preferential treatment such as reduced customs duties.
