Every year, global antirust officials, lawyers and inhouse corporate counsel gather in Beijing or Shanghai for the China Competition Policy Forum. To mark the anniversary of the implementation of China’s Antimonopoly Law (AML), the annual forum is usually held on 1 August — the day the AML took effect in 2008. In a refreshing change, this year’s event – the 8th China
Competition Policy Forum – was held 7-8 May on the subtropical island province of Hainan. Organized since 2012 by the Antimonopoly Commission (AMC) of the State Council, the forum in Hainan was for the first time hosted by the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) and the Hainan Provincial People’s Government.
As in year’s past, PaRR was on hand to cover the two-day event, delivering 16 articles and analysis on keynote addresses and panels, providing insight and perspectives from competition professionals in attendance.
