Competition Policy in Hong Kong -- Implications for Supermarkets and Other Highly Concentrated Sectors

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

As regular readers of the blog know, I am very interested in supermarket competition issues.  A news story on the soon to be implemented competition law in Hong Kong focuses on the potential application of the law to the duopoly in the supermarket sector.  I guess it comes down to how seriously the competition authorities take the arguments of Sutton (among others) regarding entry barriers.  In Chile, for example, Sutton gets taken seriously when it comes to competition policy issues in supermarkets.

The article gives a number of other different areas of potential application of the competition law too-- it is worth a read given its brevity.
