   Welcome message

Welcome to HKU and to the online platforms conference. The first day of the conference is geared to practitioners and policy questions while the second day focuses on bridging the understanding of online platforms across academic disciplines. Competition analysis of online markets is a hot topic around the world. In a number of jurisdictions, online markets already have been subject to competition law review in merger or conduct cases. In other jurisdictions, these issues are in a nascent stage of policy. A number of lessons can be learned from the cases to date involving online markets with regard to optimal competition policy. What these cases tend to share are some basic features as to how online markets work. Some jurisdictions understand the particular dynamics of multi-sided online markets. Other competition authorities sometimes may misidentify these markets and the market dynamics therein. We will explore both what is known and the gaps in knowledge to better understand these market dynamics.

Conference conveners:

Yuk-fai FONG, The University of Hong Kong
Ping LIN, Lingnan University
