With the financial situation improving, 2010 may well be the right time for the country to finally put in place a new economy-wide competition law regime. If this materialises, its introduction would signify a milestone in Hong Kong's overhaul of the existing sector-specific approach to competition regulation, which was introduced in 2000.
