China's antitrust authority – the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) – has not publicly issued any report on antitrust and the internet. With this approach, SAMR appears to go against the ‘mainstream’ of antitrust authorities internationally many of which have published reports on this topic.
Is this coincidence? Or does SAMR genuinely have different priorities when it comes to antitrust enforcement against internet players?
