In recent years, the construction sector has been the subject of close regulatory attention from competition law authorities around the world, as seen from the high-profile and large-scale probes into infringements of competition law (through so-called "cartels"). In Asia, jurisdictions such as Japan and Korea have had a steady track record of enforcement in the construction sector for many years, whilst enforcement in Hong Kong and China has also increased rapidly. Cartel cases in the construction sector often involve a range of anti-competitive behaviour including price fixing, market sharing, bid rigging and the exchange of competitively sensitive information. In this presentation, SCLHK will take a closer look at how competition law risks can materialise in the construction sector, and explore ways in which companies can guard against these risks. Drinks and canapes will be served.
