520 This is a very timely book which provides an unprecedented
analysis of the factors which have shaped the competition
law systems of ten Asian countries and Australia. The
comprehensive discussion from varying viewpoints against
the backdrop of the significantly different environments
within which the respective regimes have developed creates
a framework for the comparative assessment of competition
law systems elsewhere in the world. Lutz-Christian Wolff,
The Chinese University of Hong Kong. New competition laws
have been adopted throughout Asia in recent years, and
some of the older laws have been significantly
strengthened. This makes Asia a fascinating region in
which to look at the political and economic circumstances
of the countries in which such laws are to be found, and
to consider the very different conditions that exist
within them. This book will be an invaluable guide to
anyone with an interest in the developing competition law
regimes of this immensely important part of the world.
Richard Whish, Kings College London, UK. This detailed
book describes and analyses the essential political
economy features that provide the backdrop to the
competition policies and competition law regimes of
several of the most important Asian economies. The book
also discusses the impact of these political economy
influences in determining whether the adopted competition
policy is effective. Each of the authors experts in their
respective countries offer specific insights into the
nature and structure of their competition regimes and
discuss to what extent the varied political economy
factors unique to that country help to determine whether
and to what extent the established system promotes or
hinders economic competition in that jurisdiction.
Comprising wide coverage of Asian jurisdictions, including
Australia, this book will strongly appeal to students and
academics of law, politics, economics and economic
development, policy makers in national governments,
international agencies and competition authorities, as
well as practicing competition lawyers and in-house
