The enactment and enforcement of competition laws in the Asia Pacific region continues to grow. 2018 saw the maturation of many regulatory frameworks across the region and considerable growth in the level of enforcement activity being undertaken by the various regulators. The newer competition authorities on the block are now growing in sophistication and moving forward at considerable pace, whilst the more established competition regimes continue to push the boundaries of competition law in the enforcement of their laws by strengthening their institutions and the rules under which they operate.
