Competition Law Enforcement in China: 10 Years On and Where Next

In August 2018, China’s Anti-Monopoly Law (AML) will celebrate its 10th anniversary since its entry into force. Over the past 10 years, China has quickly established itself as one of the world’s 3 major competition law regimes alongside the EU and US, impacting international business activities with its vigorous merger control regime, antitrust investigations resulting in multi-million dollar fines and antitrust litigation on complex competition issues. The competition authorities and the courts that enforce the AML have shown that they will not hesitate to intervene and to take action, including against some of the world's leading corporations with activities in China.

This seminar will discuss key enforcement developments under the AML over the past 10 years, and identifies likely future enforcement trends and focus.
