Navigating Regulatory Hurdles in China: On Antitrust, IP, and Beyond

2019/08/29 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Update on China's regulations on antitrust & competition, IP, data protection & privacy, and beyond.

With the further reform and development of the market economy in China, the Chinese central government has simplified market entry on the one hand, but has strengthened regulations on the other hand. In particular, the establishment of State Administration for Market Regulation in 2018 has consolidated the former antitrust enforcement authorities (NDRC, MOFCOM and SAIC) into one single regulator. And the set-up of the IP Tribunal within the China Supreme Court early this year has shown the government’s determination to strengthen IP protections. In the area of data protection & privacy, similar to other jurisdictions, China has been trying to perfect the legal regime in this field to address various important issues, such as the assessment of cross-border data transfers.

We have invited two seasoned attorneys to discuss ways to navigate the increasingly important and complicated regulatory hurdles in China, particularly in the areas of antitrust & competition, IP, and data protection & privacy. It's a great opportunity to learn the lastest development in China's legal infrastructure!
