Friday 7 June (1055 - 1255)
Asia Pacific Regional Forum
It is time to hear the voices of the other side of the table in antitrust practice – the regulators. More and more jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific region now have antitrust laws, and they are being enforced more actively. Are these jurisdictions heading towards United States-style or European Union-style enforcement, or are there unique features as their laws and enforcement practices develop? Is enforcement independent of political intervention, public interest considerations or other non-competition considerations? What do regulators think enforcement will look like in five years? Let’s hear their answers, with a focus on recent enforcement highlights and future developments.
