Webinar on The Newly Enacted Cambodia Competition Law

To help businesses better understand the new competition law in Cambodia, EuroCham Cambodia - in association with the Consumer Protection Competition and Fraud Repression Directorate-General (CCF) and our partner DFDL - hosted a webinar yesterday on “The Newly Enacted Cambodia Competition Law”. The webinar was conducted and presided over by H.E. Phan Oun, Director-General of the Consumer Protection Competition and Fraud Repression Directorate-General (CCF, Ministry of Commerce) and Mr. Denis Sainte-Marie, Executive Director of EuroCham Cambodia.

Mr. Penn Virakoudom, Deputy Director of the Competition Department, discussed the law's general provisions, elaborating on the behaviour and activities of companies and individuals that may violate the new competition law, as well as the CCF's enforcement strategy. Mr. David Fruitman, DFDL's Regional Competition Law Expert, spoke about the underlying competition issues that businesses should consider and assisted attendees to review their business practices and agreements which may infringe the competition law.

The panel of experts, moderated by Mr. Noë Schellinck (EuroCham's Advocacy Manager), discussed the practical side of horizontal and vertical agreements, merger control, and abuse of dominance under the competition law with H.E. Phan Oun, Mr. David Fruitman, Mr. Matthew Tippets (Clik Payment), and Mr. Etienne Chenevier (Citystar Group). The webinar was ended with closing remarks by Mr. Chris Robinson, Partner at DFDL.
