The Asia-Pacific Antitrust Review 2016

Hong Kong: Competition Commission

10 February 2016

The year 2015 will be remembered as an important year for competition law in Hong Kong. It is the year in which the Competition Ordinance (the Ordinance) came into full effect, on 14 December. We have, as of December 2015, received more than 400 complaints and enquiries. Certain businesses have already begun to cease long-term business practices that might infringe the competition rules. All these developments reflect well on our advocacy work. Apart from continuous advocacy effort, key documents (including the guidelines and policy documents) have been published, paving the way for the substantive implementation of the Ordinance.
