SEAChange Issue V: October 2022
Our latest issue cuts across key developments in China and South Asia, including in the white-collar, arbitration and compliance space. In particular, companies operating in China’s new “regulatory era” should pay attention to sweeping amendments to China’s Antimonopoly Law which suggest higher stakes for antitrust compliance in China.
This issue’s articles examine:
- How the economic and political crisis in Sri Lanka serves as an important compliance wake-up call for operators in emerging markets across Asia;
- The Supreme Court of India examining the validity of the “group of companies” doctrine, an issue previously considered by other major jurisdictions;
- Revisions to filing standards for prosecuting white-collar crimes in China that are consistent with China’s growing crackdown on corruption and bribery; and
- Key revisions to China’s Antimonopoly Law – the first amendments to the law since its enactment in 2007.
