This book comprehensively examines competition policy and law in Greater China--the People's Republic, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The evolution of pro-competition policies in each jurisdiction is traced in the context of international developments in competition policy adoption by developing and transitional economies as well as the advocacy of competition adoption by the following international organizations- WTO, OECD, UNCTAD, the World Bank and the IMF. A theoretical explanation of the observed developments concludes that successful competition policy adoption is unlikely to succeed, without a functioning democratic system.
