7 Apr 2016 – As of 31 December 2015, almost all ASEAN countries have introduced competition laws. This means that the rules of the game for doing business in the region have changed and that businesses really have no choice but be acutely tuned in to these developments in ASEAN.
How can you ensure that your contacts with competitors or that your agreements with your suppliers and/or distributors will not run afoul of the competition laws? When expanding into new territories through acquisitions or other joint-ventures, have you ensured that no notification to the local regulator(s) is required?
This meeting by Dominique Lombardi, Foreign Lawyer, Rajah & Tann Asia (Competition & Antitrust Practice), a law firm with ASEAN wide presence, provided an overview of the competition laws and then delved into sharing practical, on the ground, experiences on the main issues faced by businesses active in this region.
