China: Complete bilingual antitrust law published for first time

 |  July 1, 2014

Oxford University Press has published the first-ever bilingual collection of all legal texts relating to Chinese competition law, according to reports.

Titled Competition Law in China: Laws, Regulations and Cases, the publication is the first comprehensive collection of its kind to be published in both Chinese and English. The text includes China’s current Anti-Monopoly Law as well as regulations issued by the Ministry of Commerce, the National Development and Reform Commission, and others.

Further, the publication includes various merger rulings by MOFCOM as well as interpretations of competition policy by China’s Supreme People’s Court.

The book is co-authored by Jones Day antitrust partners Peter Wang, Sebastien Evrard, Yizhe Zhang and associate Baohui Zhang, all based in China.

”China’s Anti-Monopoly Law has become one of the main concerns of foreign companies doing business in China. We felt that there was a need for a bilingual compilation that included all relevant laws and regulations to enable companies and their counsel to better understand China’s antitrust regime,” Wang said, who heads Jones Day’s antitrust practice in the nation.
