Abstract: Sri Lanka, being a country which is more concerned about its economic policy, has initiated
several plocies and plans to create a better platform for trade and investment while successfully
facing the global competitiveness. According to the past experiences in this journey towards a
better competition, conflict of privatization policy which is dependent on the political leadership
and party ideologies with national competition policy have remained as major problems. Instead
of a steady longterm vision towards more competition, Sri Lanka has been adopting an ad hoc
system of governance for the competition policy. The climax of the negative impact due to the
absence of an effective competition policy was evident in recent fuel production shortages and
the price fluctuations in certain goods at the national level while it must have been causing
multiple disadvantages at the global level. In order to offer a stable and conducive commercial
platform for traders as well as for foreign investors, a comprehensive national policy on
competition has become an essential factor undoubtedly. Hence, this paper utilizes a critical
approach to the existing law relates to competition in Sri Lanka and intend to recommend a
suitable unique system where the competitiveness of the nation could be accerlerated.
