UPDATE | Conference on Challenges in Enforcing Competition Law in Malaysia and Possible Reform (27 Nov 2018)
This circular has been updated with the profiles of the speakers.
This Conference — which promises to be a defining event of the Bar Council and the Malaysia Competition Commission ("MyCC") — is not to be missed. Apart from covering the current state of competition law in Malaysia, it will also address possible reform that is on the horizon. Crucially, there will be a discussion of MyCC's position on the existence of certain monopolies over goods or services in Malaysia, and the possible introduction of merger control, which would bring a sea change in legal practice relating to transactional and deal work.
The Conference will also feature the new Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, the new Chairman of MyCC, and the new CEO of MyCC. Gain insight into the latest trends and current themes, issues and cases in competition law. Also, find out more about the Competition Appeals Tribunal ("COMPAT"), MyCC's leniency programme, and other guidelines and policies.
