Dialogue 2011-12-08 Anti-monopoly campaign in China

12-08-2011 21:04 BJT

 
China is launching a probe against the nation's two telecommunications giants, China Unicom and China Telecom, over their suspected monopoly of broadband access services. It was the first time since the Anti-Monopoly Law came into effect in 2008 that the central government has opened an investigation into large enterprises. According to the law, authorities can decide to end anti-monopoly investigations if the business operators promise to take action to correct their practices. An anti-trust investigation against China's own SOEs may mean a lot to the transformation of the economic system.
