2015/12/14Competition Law Must Get the Balance on Enforcement Right
Businesses, especially small and medium-sized ones, need clear guidance on how the ordinance will affect them if it is to work to the benefit of all Hongkongers.
As the debate on how the Competition Ordinance should be applied and administered draws to a close, expect business angst to intensify after the roll-out of the ordinance on December 14, as the reality of achieving compliance begins to dawn on companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises.

Hong Kong's competition bill a threat to SMEs
Shirley Yuen pushes the government to amend the proposed anti-competition law to shield SMEs, so it does not get in the way of healthy commercial conduct that supports innovation and efficiency.
2012/05/11競爭法草案未完善難教企業安心
在競爭法的立法過程中,如何保障中小企一直是主要課題。2010 年中推出《競爭條例草案》至今,經過多次會議討論和審議,仍未完全解決的,依然是涉及中小企的問題。
2012/05/11競爭法模糊不清 總商會深感憂慮
經過近兩年的審議,競爭法的立法程式已進入關鍵階段。立法會大會很快會恢復辯論競爭條例及其修正案,商界對條例草案的一些主要問題仍然十分關注。
2011/08/26中小企對競爭法憂慮非無道理
《競爭條例草案》最終能否通過,很大程度上將視乎政府能否釋除中小企業的疑慮。支持競爭法的理據之一,是認為競爭法可確保市場有充分競爭,特別是保障中小企。但現在香港的中小企最反對立法,是否代表草案有問題?或是香港的情況特殊?這些問題, 值得政府和支持條例草案的人士深思。
2011/03/24保障中小企 競爭法必須清晰
立法會審議《競爭條例草案》的法案小組審議進度非常緩慢,一度幾乎陷於膠着。議員和官員在多個基本問題上仍存在分歧。為增取更多支持,最近官員開始到區議會推介草案。無獨有偶,一群香港與海外的學者聯署信件,力證草案適合香港。
2011/03/17Fair warning
In light of a near stalemate in the legislature over the proposed Competition Bill, the government has stepped up its efforts to promote it. But the support of officials and academics for the bill as it is currently drafted ignores the real issue, which is not about whether Hong Kong should have a competition law, but what kind of competition law.
2010/12/07Law needs to spell out anti-competitive actions
As legislators start scrutinising the competition bill, the fundamental questions of what kind of competition regime Hong Kong wants, and needs, have been raised once again. Until the bill was presented to the Legislative Council, many had been led to believe that it would be about weeding out hard-core anti-competitive behaviour, such as price-fixing, bid-rigging and market-sharing.
2009/03/06Care and time needed for competition law
The government's announcement last week to delay the competition bill is the right move. It will give officials time to focus on the important and substantial technical, legal and policy matters that have to be addressed as soon as possible. Clarity is needed. The operations of businesses and markets are complex. This is the first time many businesses in Hong Kong will be operating under the provisions of a fair-competition law, and getting it right needs to be a priority.
