Countries included in the Guidebook
Australia China Hong Kong
India Indonesia Japan
Malaysia New Zealand Philippines
Singapore Taiwan Thailand

Since releasing the first guidebook in 2013, emerging and developed countries in Asia continue to amend their competition laws as local and global markets evolve. Mature competition law jurisdictions such as Australia and Japan have reviewed and added amendments, while other emerging Asia Pacific jurisdictions in terms of competition laws such as the Philippines, New Zealand and Thailand, among others, have submitted new policies and amendments to prohibit anti-competitive practices in their relevant markets. With all of these reforms, local and global businesses are more keen in following these developments and learning about new competition regulations in Asia Pacific. All of these developments are covered in the guidebook. The entire content of the guidebook is available on Global Compliance News – Click HERE
