About Hong Kong Competition Law

This important new book provides a substantive introduction to Hong Kong competition law contained in the new Competition Ordinance as supplemented by the Competition Commission's Guidelines. Reference is also made to the most important case law concerning competition rules in other jurisdictions, in particular the European Union, from which the Hong Kong competition rules draw inspiration. Hong Kong Competition Law also sets out fully the procedural and enforcement rules before the Competition Commission and the Competition Tribunal. Specific sections deal with the application of competition law to the major economic sectors in Hong Kong: construction, energy, finance, retail, telecommunications and transport. A final chapter provides a comparative survey of competition law in China, Japan and South Korea.

“The authors are to be heartily congratulated for producing a work of this quality. I warmly recommend it not only to legal practitioners but also to anyone who desires a serious understanding of competition law in Hong Kong.” –  From the Foreword by Godfrey Lam, President of the Hong Kong Competition Tribunal,

“... the authors have probably achieved that rare feat of writing a practitioner text with the status of being an instant classic ... This is an excellent book providing a comprehensive, detailed, and clear treatment of the relevant law in Hong Kong, setting the discussion firmly within its relevant socio-economic context.” –  Mark Furse, European Competition Law Review
