NEWS & UPDATES

March 12, 2018 

Jindrich Kloub (Executive Director - Operations, Hong Kong Competition Commission) has been interviewed by Thomas Cheng Kin-Hon (Associate Professor, University of Hong Kong)Read a snippet of the interview below.

You have had a wealth of enforcement experiences in Europe. What do you think HK can learn from Europe and where do you think Europe's lessons may not be so relevant for Hong Kong?

Having introduced competition law fairly recently, Hong Kong has the benefit of being able to draw on the lessons accumulated by many jurisdictions around the world. The Competition Ordinance shows a variety influences but given that its substantive provisions are based largely on EU competition law, I am of the view that that is where EU's lessons might be most relevant. Ultimately, it is up to the Competition Tribunal to interpret the Ordinance and the concepts contained therein but in doing so, it will be able to look to a vast body of the Court of Justice of the EU, which spans more than 50 years (...)

Richard Rinkema (Senior Director - Competition & Innovation Law & Policy, Microsoft, Beijing ) has been interviewed by François Renard (Partner, Allen & Overy, Hong Kong) Read a snippet of the interview below.

How different is your practice in Asia when compared to your past practice in the US? Do you focus on other types of antitrust issues that would not be of concern in the US?

I have found that the theoretical basis for analyzing antitrust questions is pretty similar across jurisdictions, which I think is a testament to the impact of efforts like this conference, and of stakeholders in academia, government, industry, and private practice across Asia and from outside Asia to share learnings over the years. So having a strong foundation in antitrust theory, whether it’s in the US or in Europe or homegrown here in Asia, seems more important to successful practice here than knowing the black-letter law of this jurisdiction or that. There are definitely some differences – I spend a lot more time counseling on avoiding resale price maintenance, which of course is more often a per se violation here, and there are some areas such as essential facilities, abuse of superior bargaining position, and some price-related issues where there are different approaches when comparing the US, EU, and various Asian countries (...)
