Since the first edition was published, the Singapore competition law regime has developed considerably. New enforcement decisions have created a small but growing depository of local cases which will continue to shape the development and practice of competition law in Singapore. This book provides a comprehensive guide to how competition laws in Singapore will be implemented, and how businesses, practitioners and students should navigate the regime.
