Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Liyang Hou, KoGuan Law School, Shanghai Jiao Tong University offers An Evaluation of the Enforcement of China's Anti-Monopoly Law in 2008-2013.

ABSTRACT: The Anti-Monopoly Law of the People’s Republic of China became effective on 1st August 2008. The last five years have seen a decent number of progresses made by the Chinese competition authorities. This article aims to evaluate the enforcement of the AML at its fifth anniversary. It first introduces the process of establishing competition authorities and the adoption of enforcing guidelines, and then provides an overview of public and private enforcement taking place in 2008-2013. The initial impression leads to a finding of in general dissatisfaction from the Chinese public. Nevertheless after an in-depth analysis this article identifies three underlying reasons accounting for such a situation. In the end, some general comments are offered.
