China’s State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) is likely to witness a change in antitrust unit leadership in the near future as a result of internal rotation of bureau chiefs, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

Wu Zhenguo, the current director-general of the Antimonopoly Bureau (AMB), is expected to be relocated to another position within SAMR, according to the sources. 

The personnel change has been under discussion since SAMR’s new chief Xiao Yaqing took office in May this year, when he replaced former chief Zhang Mao, the sources added.
