TOPIC: The Hong Kong Competition Ordinance: How it may impact your business.
The Hong Kong Competition Ordinance was enacted in 2012 and is due to come into effect on 14 December 2015.
Under the new rules, any discussion of pricing or other commercially sensitive information with competitors will create risks and could lead to the imposition of fines by the Competition Tribunal. The new regime may also impact how businesses can influence the commercial policies of their suppliers, distributors or agents. Resale price obligations, exclusivity or non-compete clauses may need to be reviewed and amended to ensure compliance.
This seminar will focus on the key substantive and procedural aspects of the new Ordinance. We will share our experience of how similar competition rules have impacted businesses overseas and share practical compliance tips.
