Many companies today operate their Mainland-Hong Kong business as a seamless and integrated whole. However, the competition laws applicable to these two jurisdictions are different. Understanding the similarities and differences between the two can help companies be better able to adapt a core set of competition compliance principles to jurisdiction-specific features in Hong Kong and Mainland. The consistent application of core compliance principles across Hong Kong and Mainland minimizes disruption in business operations arising from divergent rules, and also increases the ease of compliance and monitoring especially for legal teams and management that have purview over the Greater China region.
In this seminar, we explore the differences in Mainland and Hong Kong competition laws in relation to a supply chain to discuss competition law issues regarding:
- Rules surrounding distributorship models and sales incentives
- Resale price maintenance
- Excessive pricing in downstream markets
- Use of most favored nation clauses
