5  Grouping member countries into three groups of competition development:  AMSs with implemented CPL;  AMSs at legislation level;  AMSs have not started the development of CPL. 5

10  The existence of CPL mostly comes from external pressure. Current pressure raises by target as mentioned in the blueprint, because effective promotion of competition policy will need specific national competition law;  Slow movement, despite of closer time frame for economic integration;  Determinant factors fostering development among others based on each characters of AMSs, nature of economic development, and legal system. 10
