Competition Law Enforcement in Malaysia: Some Recent Developments

The enactment of the Competition Act 2010 represents a significant progress in the implementation of competition policy in Malaysia.

It has also investigated and issued proposed decisions in a number of high profile cases involving Malaysian Airlines, AirAsia, and Megasteel.
