Handbook on E-Commerce & Competition in ASEAN

Online markets: Can existing competition policy handle the challenges posed by the growth of E-Commerce?

On 16 August the Minister for Trade in Singapore launched a Handbook on E-Commerce & Competition in ASEAN, which was prepared by PwC for the Competition Commission of Singapore, CCS. The exponential growth of E-commerce has altered the competitive landscape and redefined industry structures. While there is significant potential for growth of the E-Commerce sector in ASEAN, an open and level playing field is vital to realise this potential. The handbook highlights how E-Commerce impacts traditional competition dynamics, and outlines policy considerations and advocacy strategies to address the challenges of enforcing competition law with the rise of E-Commerce. The handbook also includes a compliance checklist to help businesses engaged in E-commerce activities identify and comply with competition laws in ASEAN.
