Abstract

The present paper aims to analyze the Tobacco market in Colombia, and determine in it, the effects of public policy regulation, surveillance and control national authorities. Specifically establish what was the economic behavior of the brands and their evolution in terms of efficiency, after the signal given to the market by the National Competition Authority (SIC), by blocking a merger between the two major domestic tobacco companies (Compañía Colombiana de Tabaco S.A. [Coltabaco] and Productora Tabacalera de Colombia Ltda. [Protabaco]), and subsequently by permitting another merger (Protabaco and British American Tobacco South American Limited [BAT]) within the same relevant market.
