Malaysia Competition Conference 2017 – Competition Law: Breaking Norms, Managing Change

Malaysia Competition Conference 2017

Competition Law: Breaking Norms, Managing Change

 

The Malaysia Competition Commission (MyCC) was established on 1 April 2011 with the purpose of enforcing the Competition Act 2010 (CA2010). The MyCC safeguards the process of free and fair competition in commercial markets for the benefit of consumer welfare, efficiency of enterprises and the development of the economy as a whole.

In line with its continuous effort to advocate the importance of the CA2010 to the Malaysia’s public, the MyCC will be organising the Malaysia Competition Conference 2017 “Competition Law: Breaking Norms, Managing Change” as per the details stated below:

Date    :   6 – 7 March 2017 (Monday – Tuesday)

Venue :   Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Bandar Sunway, Petaling Jaya, Selangor

The goal of this 2-day conference is to assist stakeholders in having a better understanding of the CA2010 and provide an in-depth look at the application of the law. The conference will also share with the participants the current trends in competition enforcement and international cooperation in the face of recent global challenges.

For this purpose, in addition to our own local experts, we have gathered experienced and established international competition experts as speakers for this conference. These speakers are from various international jurisdictions from countries such as Republic of South Africa, Australia, Portugal, Mexico, Germany, the United States of America (USA) and Hong Kong, as well as from established international organisations such as the European Commission (EC), International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). This distinguished line-up of experts come from long established competition regimes to share their invaluable views and experience with us on the role that competition law and policy has played to help shape and develop their economies and consumer welfare in their respective countries.

Attached herewith are the leaflet of this conference and the programme outline for your reference.  Given the limited seats allocated, interested parties are advised to make their early reservations together with full payment by 20 February 2017 via the registration form in the conference leaflet.
