In response to the rising profile in the last few months of China’s anti-monopoly (anti-trust) laws, the Weber Shandwick Public Affairs practice in Beijing has produced Government Affairs Update: Anti-Monopoly Policy with Chinese Characteristics. The article analyses the business implications of recent anti-monopoly investigations in the country, and gives timely advice to corporations looking to navigate the changing operating environment.

The article recommends four key pieces of advice for businesses operating in China:

  • Understand the latest anti-monopoly law developments, including the underlying political and industry-development dimensions and their influence on the application of the law
  • Know the pressures being placed on China’s regulatory bodies and how each is developing its approach to market regulation
  • Consider what the recent anti-monopoly decisions mean for business structure and pricing arrangements, particularly when considering pricing solutions
  • Have a crisis management plan in place, which includes how to respond to anti-monopoly investigations.
