Fireside Chat: Challenges and Opportunities for Hong Kong under the Competition Ordinance

07 June 2017

Competition law is now firmly on the minds of many in Hong Kong, particularly with the Commission's milestone first case before the Competition Tribunal and the release of the agency's long-awaited findings on the local auto-fuel market.

Deacons is co-hosting a breakfast with AustCham to hear from two Australians, both of whom were previously at the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission: Rose Webb, current CEO of the agency responsible for enforcing the Competition Ordinance and Wendy Thian (also formerly with the Hong Kong Commission), who now leads the Competition practice at Deacons, Hong Kong's oldest and largest independent law firm.

The informal discussion will cover the business implications of the Commission's recent law enforcement and advocacy efforts as well as global enforcement trends, from both the agency and corporate perspectives.

Event details are set out as below.
