The First Five Years of China's Antimonopoly Law
Nathan Bush, O'Melveny & Myers
Description: China’s first comprehensive competition statute, the Antimonopoly Law (AML), took effect on August 1, 2008. Since then, China has emerged as a significant antitrust jurisdiction as its competition authorities have blocked or imposed conditions on worldwide mergers, fined foreign cartels, and even challenged the commercial practices of some state-owned enterprises. Mr. Bush, a partner in the Beijing and Singapore office of O’Melveny & Myers, will assess the first five years of Chinese antitrust enforcement under the AML and future directions of Chinese competition policy under the new Xi Jinping government.
