Competition and Consumer Law Enforcement in Singapore




In April 2018, the Competition Commission of Singapore was renamed the "Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore" or "CCCS" – reflecting the broadening of its ambit to enforce not only competition law but also consumer law in Singapore.

Many businesses have expressed concern as to what this means in terms of both competition and consumer law enforcement going forward.

It is thus timely that the Chamber invites leading competition and consumer law experts from international law firm Ashurst to provide perspectives regarding both competition and consumer law enforcement in Singapore on 18 July 2018

The speakers will identify various "hotspots" in respect of both laws relevant to international and domestic businesses in Singapore. Examples of recent enforcement actions from the Asia Pacific region will be explored, including covering the case of the proposed Grab/Uber acquisition.
