The Role of Competition Law and Policy in Supporting ASEAN e-Commerce
E-Commerce plays an increasingly significant role in the way ASEAN consumers purchase goods and services and will continue to be a key front for ASEAN economic integration, especially in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Against a backdrop of multiple measures taken by ASEAN leaders to promote intra-ASEAN e-Commerce trade, digital trade in the region might be simultaneously facilitated and impeded by regional market developments that impact the competitive landscape in which online merchants operate.
Examining this, CCCS officers Mr Tan Hi Lin (Director, Policy & Markets Division), Ms Celestine Song (Assistant Director, Policy & Markets Division) and Assoc Prof Burton Ong (Head of Competition Law Research at the EW Barker Centre for Law and Business, National University of Singapore) wrote an essay titled “The Role of Competition Law and Policy in Supporting ASEAN e-Commerce”. This is included in CPI’s latest book “The Evolution of Antitrust In the Digital Era: Essays on Competition Policy (Volume 1)” published in November 2020. The book is a collection of essays that reflect the antitrust thinking in digital markets in jurisdiction around the world.
