Part Two discusses Australia's approach to comity. Part Three considers the cooperative arrangements regarding competition policy in which Australia participates, explaining their role and content. It also discusses Australia's participation in international bodies and the important role played by government networks in achieving convergence, compliance, and cooperation between competition regimes.
