A year and a half has passed since the enactment of the new Competition Ordinance (Cap 619). Yet, the law is still not in operation while we wait for the Competition Commission to do whatever it is that they do.

As if to make sure that everyone knows that they are doing something, the Competition Commission has, according to the Commission’s chairwoman, started a two-month consultation on guidelines covering the law. I know this because it was reported on RTHK. I have not seen it announced anywhere else, which is a bit odd. I’ll post more details here if and when I find them.
