SYNTHESIS

KEYNOTE

Frédéric Jenny highlighted some recent developments of competition regimes in the Asia-Pacific region. Australia has brought forward a major merger reform proposal, and competition authorities in South-East Asia such as Philippines and Malaysia have increased their enforcement activities and sanctions volumes. In China as well, the executive branch has called for stronger anti-monopoly action. In India, the Competition Commission is investigating an antitrust challenge of Apple for allegedly abusing its dominant position in the app market by forcing developers to use its proprietary In-App Purchase system.
