What's On

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.

Join us on 19 October, when experts from SF Lawyers in association with KPMG Law will share their insights on the PRC's antitrust laws and discuss the potential impact on your business, particularly relating to e-commerce. Topics to be covered include:

- PRC laws regulating antitrust issues regarding e-commerce
- Case studies of abuse of dominant market position
- Legal implications of abuse of dominant market position
- Prospect of future legislation and law enforcement
