Liyang Hou of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven provides some thoughts on Some New Developments after the Coming-into-Effect of Chinese Anti-Monopoly Law.
ABSTRACT: On 1st August, 2008 Chinese Anti-Monopoly Law (CAL) became effective. A lot of people claim CAL is the shortest competition law in the whole world. Based on this, you can imagine how crude this law is and how urgent the adoption of implementation guidance is. However, apparently the implementation measures have not fully on the agenda yet, though the law turned into effective this month. Nevertheless, several actions taken by the Central Government of China were initiated regarding the implementation of the CAL.
