Asian states will develop their own competition law systems on their own terms and on the basis of their own institutions, traditions, and goals. In making choices about the structure and operations of their competition law systems, however, they are likely to look to US and European concepts and institutions. There may be value, therefore, in looking at how such concepts and institutions have there been used in implementing competition law and assessing how Asian governments, competition law officials and attorneys can evaluate and utilize this experience.
This Article will first identify some of the basic issues relating to the implementation of competition law. It then looks at experience with implementing competition law in the US and in Europe. Thereafter I analyze the differences in those two arenas of experience and make some suggestions as to how that experience might be useful to decisionmakers in Asia.
