The new Competition Law is due to take effect from 01 July 2019, replacing its 14-year-old predecessor. Given the widened scope of application and the shift towards a more stringent approach, the New Law is expected to have a significant impact on how enterprises, especially MNCs, in a variety of industries conduct their day-to-day business as well as merger filings.
Against this backdrop, our guest speaker will walk you through the key changes introduced by the New Law and their commercial implications. In particular, the presentation will address the changes introduced to the three pillars of competition law (i.e. cartels, abuse of market power, merger control), their commercial impact, consequences of violation, and prospect of law enforcement. Dr. Tuan will also address what steps businesses should take in preparation for the New Law. The remainder of the event will be dedicated to discussion and Q&A.
