Asian Competition Forum 8th Annual Conference, 10th and 11th December 2012, Hong Kong, “Establishing Sound Enforcement Priorities and Processes”

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Asian Competition Forum 8th Annual Conference

10th and 11th December 2012, Hong Kong

Establishing Sound Enforcement Priorities and Processes

 

 

There has been continued development in competition law in Asia in the last year especially in ASEAN countries. Many jurisdictions in Asia have adopted or will soon adopt a competition regime that includes a normative law and an enforcement mechanism. The next pressing issue in many countries is the enforcement agenda. Issues such as which anticompetitive practices or sectors to target, the temptation to take easy cases at the expense of more complex investigations, political interference, judicial challenges often based on procedure rather than substance, funding priorities and inter-agency rivalry. We have thus decided to adopt as the theme for our annual conference "Establishing Sound Enforcement Priorities and Processes". The conference will be held in Hong Kong on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th December, 2012.
