Chinese tech companies such as Tencent and Alibaba flourished under China’s “light-touch” regulatory regime to become the giants they are today. However the regulatory environment appears to be changing, following the crackdown on Alibaba beginning in November of last year, and other big tech players are bracing themselves for greater scrutiny over uncompetitive practices. We discuss the motivations and implications of China’s antitrust enforcement with legal expert Dr. Angela Zhang, author of the book, “Chinese Antitrust Exceptionalism: How the Rise of China Will Challenge Global Regulation”.
