Businesses aim to maximise profits and value. Yet, Competition law prohibits sharing of information, imposing unreasonable terms and conditions, exclusivity, tying or bundling multiple products, imposing resale price maintenance and much more - all aspects of a typical business structure. Competition law is unique in that it is a business law where the economics of the business plays a critical role. Competition Economics is particularly important in enabling a better understanding of say whether a business’ rebate system or exclusivity arrangement is anti-competitive or not.
Join us on Aug 19, 2016

at AMCHAM Executive Office
, where a panel of local and regional experts comprising economists, lawyers and the malaysia competition commission
will provide a regional and international flavour on:-
- Competition developments with an economic twist and assess common business arrangements, from rebate systems to cooperation agreements to most favoured nation clauses, through an economic lens to determine what makes them anti-competitive – or not.
- The importance of economic analysis from market definition to impact analysis to the evaluation of net economic benefits, and consequential potential penalties in the event of a violation will also be discussed.
