China Finance Centre Supports Adoption of China’s New Anti-Monopoly Law As Positive Step

China Finance Centre’s new China America Trade Association policy body issues statement supporting China’s passage of its first ever anti-monopoly law. CFC sees law as vitally important to the advancement of US - China trade and commerce.

 
PRLog - Sep. 2, 2007 - CHINA FINANCE CENTRE, the New York based multimedia and trade exposition center expanding business ties between China and the United States, has announced its support of the new anti-monopoly law adopted by China’s legislature last week. The statement was issued by  the China America Trade Association (“CATA”), CFC’s newly established policy body concerned with commercial issues impacting trade between the U.S. and China.

In announcing the CFC position, CFC president William J. Hallenbeck noted that “China clearly needs a broad-based anti-monopoly law as it seeks to reduce the size of the state-owned industries that once monopolized its entire economy. This first ever law represents an effective step toward accomplishing this vital goal.”
The new law was adopted on Thursday by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's national legislature. The anti-monopoly law is designed to ensure fair competition and regulate market order. The law, which took 13 years to adopt, will become effective on August 1, 2008.
Among the law’s  provisions is a requirement that requires foreign purchasers of Chinese companies to be subjected to national security checks. This has sparked expressions of concern by some US and EU business groups.  It is CFC’s position that the national security provisions largely parallel those followed in most countries.
Hallenbeck observed, “ All countries must be concerned with certain implications of acquisitions of domestic companies by foreign purchasers. However,  on balance, China’s  new law is mainly designed to break down the monopoly powers of state owned enterprises, offering many opportunities for U.S. businesses. This is of fundamental and critical long term importance to American interests.”

Statement In Support of China’s Anti-Monopoly Law

China America Trade Association “CATA”), the policy division of China Finance Centre of New York, fully supports the actions of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's national legislature, in adopting the country’s first ever anti-monopoly law.  
CATA views the new anti-monopoly law as a positive step, which, having taken thirteen years to draft, has been carefully designed to ensure fair competition and regulate market order throughout China’s economy.  
It is noted that certain concerns have been raised by some international organizations about the national security review process to which foreign investors may be subjected if they acquire domestic enterprises. CATA views this issue as a proper matter for review by any national government, it being presumed that such reviews will be administered in accordance with appropriate standards and limitations.
