Hong Kong: Cartels

16 March 2018

Overview More than two years have passed since the Competition Ordinance (CO) – the first economy-wide competition law in Hong Kong – came into force on 14 December 2015. In its second year of enforcement, the Hong Kong Competition Commission (the Commission) – the main agency charged with investigating conduct that may infringe the CO – has made steady progress in enforcing the CO, including, most significantly, bringing two cases before the Competition Tribunal (the Tribunal) – the specialist court in charge of hearing competition cases. Both of these cases concern cartel conduct in violation of the First Conduct Rule (FCR) of the CO.
