China’s Anti-monopoly Law and new Merger Review Rules: Time of Change?

The Chinese competition regulator started the New Year with a flurry of activity on the policy development front. Key among these were the public consultations released in early January on the proposed amendments to China’s 12-year-old Anti-monopoly Law and the draft ‘Interim Provisions on Undertaking Concentration Review’. 

These proposals signal important changes coming to China’s antitrust and merger control regime in 2020, including a new focus on the internet sector and stricter penalties for gun-jumping and other breaches in the merger review process.
