The Asia-Pacific Antitrust Review 2011

Merger Control: Overview

19 April 2011

These agencies undertook efforts to develop and clarify domestic merger rules, strengthen domestic and cross-border enforcement efforts, and build on the harmonisation and transparency efforts of recent years. Recent activity in the region indicates that corporations and counsel should expect continued close scrutiny of proposed transactions in Asia-Pacific jurisdictions.
