The Singapore competition law framework has evolved significantly since the first version was issued. New enforcement rulings have produced a modest but increasing repository of local cases that will continue to affect Singapore's competition law growth and practise. This book offers a complete overview of how Singapore's competition laws will be implemented, as well as how firms, practitioners, and students should navigate the system.

This second volume examines the lessons learned from the Competition Commission of Singapore's infringement judgements, many of which take into consideration Singapore's specific circumstances.

From the Foreword

"Through an examination of the numerous decisions issued over the past six years since the publication of the first edition of the book, the second edition of this book provides a comprehensive update and an in-depth discussion of how competition law has been interpreted and enforced in Singapore by the [CCS] as well as the Competition Appeal Board." The perspectives offered by diverse experts with substantial expertise in competition law and economics, particularly in Singapore's competition law system, will give readers a more holistic knowledge of the local events. [This book] also demonstrates the delicate balancing act that must be done in practise between the demands of a dynamic economy and the interpretation of the legal framework that governs competitive behaviour.
