Essential Antitrust #38: What businesses can expect from China’s revised merger control regime

In January 2024, China implemented significant changes to its merger control thresholds – marking the first revisions in 16 years. Coupled with last year's amendments to the Anti-Monopoly Law, they represent a comprehensive revamp of China’s merger control regime.

In this episode of our Essential Antitrust podcast, host Jenn Mellott is joined by Freshfields’ Ninette Dodoo and Laurent Bougard and RuiMin’s Hazel Yin to examine these changes and their impact on filing deals for regulatory clearance in China. Their discussion features critical insights into navigating the merger control process as well as addressing sectors at risk of increased scrutiny and underscoring broader regulatory issues, including national security reviews.
