Despite the escalating trade war between the US and China, senior officials from 14 competition agencies and international organisations gathered in Beijing in late July to mark the 10th year of China’s Antimonopoly Law enforcement. The two-day event, organized by the Expert Advisory Board of the State Council’s Antimonopoly Commission (AMC), welcomed more than 300 participants, from enforcers and practitioners to company executives and antitrust academics. The China Competition Policy Forum has become an important annual event on the international antitrust calendar. This year’s theme – Competition Policy in a New Era – produced a wealth of critical information on worldwide regulatory developments and legal precedent, which PaRR has compiled in a comprehensive report capturing the highlights and insights delivered by antitrust experts from the lectern and on the sidelines.
