China Competition Law


The economy of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has undergone a rapid transformation in a relatively short time—as have its antitrust and competition laws and regulations. Since the country’s Anti-Monopoly Law (AML) was implemented in 2008, the Supreme Court of China (SPC) has redefined many of its judicial procedures, while the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and the State Administration of Industry and Commerce (SAIC), among other bodies, have begun to aggressively enforce the newly enacted law.
