Competition Law in the ASEAN Countries: Regional Law and National Systems
International Competition Law Series-73
About this book:
Competition Law in the ASEAN Countries, the first detailed analysis of competition law in the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries, looks at the prospects of implementation of the regional competition law and compares the existing systems in each Member State. Amongst other regional organisations, the ASEAN stands out for the diversity of its ten Member States, stemming from their respective economic and political heritage, governance systems, legal institutions, stages of economic development, and exposure to or reliance on foreign trade and investments. As of 2017, however, the regional bloc has formalised its focus on economic integration and development of regional competition law. Challenging this vision are the States’ very different national competition law systems, ongoing problems with governmental intervention in the economy, and lack of effective and efficient corruption-free regulatory and juridical infrastructure.
What’s in this book:
Opening with a thorough description of the composition and organisation of the ASEAN, the analysis proceeds to an in-depth evaluation of such aspects as the following:
- persistence of the ASEAN’s traditional mode of dispute resolution often referred to as the ASEAN Way;
- economic challenges posed by intra-regional growth and globalisation;
- the strong relationship between the business and government sectors; and
- governmental interventions as cultural practices.
There is detailed reference throughout to case law, legislation, institutional announcements, relevant treaties, and literature on both the ASEAN and competition law.
How this will help you:
Although the subject of this book is specifically the ASEAN, the analysis contributes to a better understanding of competition law regimes in developing economies and to the more general literature on global competition law. As an important study of this major new regional competition law regime, this book helps practitioners, multinational corporation counsel, and jurists, officials, and academics to confidently navigate through the maze of the ASEAN integration and thereby contributes to the literature on the developing jurisdictions’ effort in the regionalisation of competition law.
