Abstract: The paper will attempt to show that there are many factors associated with a small domestic market that have a bearing on competition law and policy, and therefore competition regime of a small state should take these factors into account. Special reference will be made to Malta, where competition legislation is modelled on EU competition law. The thrust of the arguments put forward in this paper is not that competition rules should be discarded in small states or that abuse should be tolerated. The basic contention is that exceptions, normally based on considerations such as improved efficiency, distribution, and overall consumer benefit, are more likely to be relevant in small states in certain circumstances.
