Vietnam’s competition law is poised for big changes as the new 2018 Law on Competition comes into force from 1 July 2019. It is critical for businesses already operating or considering investing in Vietnam to understand this evolving regulatory environment. This guide provides such an overview, and covers the key differences between the 2004 Law on Competition and the 2018 Law on Competition.
The guide was originally conceived as a Mayer Brown monthly periodical in late 2018 – the “Vietnam Competition Law Series” – in response to client demands for further clarity and guidance regarding the new competition law regime in Vietnam. This booklet is the culmination of the process, and consolidates the four issues in the series into an easy reference source.
This guide is presented in a simple and accessible manner, and is intended as a useful reference tool for businesses and in-house counsel to have a quick understanding of Vietnam Competition Law.
