He added the competition authority might recommend legal amendments to increase competition in this sector, such as lifting the obligation for a taxi driver to be affiliated to a dispatch, local News.roreported.
The comment comes in the context of fierce arguments between traditional taxi operators and application-based operators such as Uber and Bolt (Taxify). Taxi companies have repeatedly urged the Government to outlaw Uber-like operators for unfair competition, while the Government seems more inclined to regulate their activity.

Uber and Taxify have also urged traditional taxi operators to accept competition instead of attempting to force the Government to ban.
