Competition Enforcers & Academic Summit 2019:
August 1-2, 2019 (Thursday and Friday),
United Conference Centre, Hong Kong
Following the launch of the Competition Exchange last year, the Hong Kong Competition Commission (Commission) and the Centre for Competition Policy and Regulation of Hong Kong Lingnan University hosted a regional summit to foster collaboration between leading academics and competition enforcement agencies. The Competition Enforcers and Academics Summit (Summit) was held in Hong Kong on 1‐2 August 2019.
The focus of the Summit is to explore the most effective ways in which academic institutions and competition law enforcement agencies can mutually benefit from joint projects and opportunities. We believe that collaboration can take many forms, and can cover different areas including market studies, enforcement, merger review, advocacy, and sabbaticals for academics at competition agencies. Our hope is that participants will find the Summit to be a practical one that provides a forum for the exchange of ideas of collaboration between enforcement agencies and academics in different jurisdictions in the region, and for partnerships to be forged.
