It is also essential for family farmers to have access to local markets. This is especially important at a time when large-scale agri-business producers are pushing small-scale producers out of their traditional market spaces, which has been aggravated by international dumping and WTO rules. (...) Sea, water and land-grabbing have many faces and the Aral Sea and Lake Urmia are examples where serious damage has already occurred as result of these things.

COMPETITION ISSUES IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY
Following the transaction, Grab held 80 per cent of the market share and increased prices once its closest competitor, Uber, was out of the market. Strong network effects prevented new entrants from reaching a viable scale and expanding in the market. Further, Grab had imposed exclusivity obligations on taxi companies, car rental partners and drivers, thereby hampering the ability of potential competitors to access the drivers and vehicles necessary for expansion in the market. (...) The Viet Nam Competition Council initiated an investigation into the transaction in May 2018, and stated in December 2018 that Grab might have a post-acquisition market share of more than 50 per cent in Viet Nam and should therefore have notified the merger to the Authority in accordance with competition law.
