The Commission says it is to be part of a co-operation arrangement with its equivalents in Australia and Canada - the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and the Canadian Competition Bureau.
Chairman John Belgrave says that as cross-border commerce is becoming easier and more widespread, competition agencies must correspond accordingly.

"The co-operation arrangement is part of ongoing efforts to ensure that the Commerce Commission has the tools to deal effectively with increasingly globalised markets."
