ABSTRACT: This article starts with an overview of the regulatory challenges brought by the ride-hailing service, collates how China’s ride-hailing regulatory measures react to these challenges, and discusses the possible anti-competitive impact of the constraints imposed by ride-hailing regulatory measures. On that basis, this article explores how the anti-competitive impact can be mitigated from the perspectives of the AML and China’s fair competition review system. While clarifying whether ride-hailing is a form of the sharing economy, this article reveals from a macro level what competition and regulation problems the sharing economy has brought to us, and stimulate the thinking of proper governance of the sharing economy.
