This Guide provides a comprehensive overview of the competition laws and practices of 22 selected jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific region.

 

Many new competition laws have been introduced in the Asia-Pacific region in the last few years, so that the vast majority of jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific region are now equipped with competition laws. The time is ripe for a comprehensive overview and stocktaking of the laws and the practices of most of the jurisdictions in the region.

The Guide describes some of the main aspects of an antitrust system for each of the jurisdictions, presents the goals of each competition regime, the main elements of the competition agency responsible for an economy wide enforcement, its investigation powers, the powers to sanction and to accept remedies, and takes stock of the practice via statistics for each enforcement instrument.

This Guide serves to contribute to increase the understanding between the jurisdictions in the region of each other’s laws and practice as well as to better target the capacity building efforts of the OECD/Korea Policy Centre and others active in the region. 

This research was done in close co-operation with all the relevant competition agencies of the Asia Pacific region and is the result of a fruitful OECD/Korea Policy Centre Competition Programme joint venture between the OECD and the Korean government.
