People can see how e-commerce has transformed the consumer market, but they may not see how antitrust laws – which aim to ensure fair competition in the marketplace -- are also transforming the way e-commerce companies operate.
Generally speaking, with greater scale comes stricter regulations. As the e-commerce industry continues to grow rapidly, Chinese authorities have started to pay closer attention to the practices of e-commerce companies. The authorities intend to plug the legal loopholes that have emerged as the sector develops, and also to promote and maintain fair competition among e-commerce companies.
Therefore, companies involved in e-commerce in China should closely monitor the latest legislative developments, and carefully examine their own policies and practices to ensure compliance with the relevant laws and regulations.
