dc.description.abstract2 During the last two decades, Latin American countries have brought about important reforms in infrastructure services, encompassing changes both in ownership patterns and in operating terms. Regulatory frameworks have also evolved from monopoly and public ownership settings lacking specific regulations, towards scenarios where private participation prevails, with competition and regulation playing complementary roles. However, even though competition is a pivotal feature to all public services reform processes, a high degree of vertical and horizontal concentration pervades within the industrial structure of many of the countries in Latin American and the Caribbean. Furthermore, mergers and acquisitions taking place in the context of an increasingly global economy, without the appropriate legislation and accounting rules geared at promoting competition and restraining market control, have often led to reduce levels of competition for the market or in the market.
