Hong Kong Competition Commission expands leniency program

On 29 April 2019, the Hong Kong Competition Commission published its new "cooperation policy." In essence, the cooperation policy expands the authority's leniency program. The expansion occurs in two main directions. First, the benefits of the existing leniency program can only accrue to a single company involved in a cartel, while the cooperation policy is available to subsequent applicants. Second, the cooperation policy puts forward a new concept – "Leniency Plus" – which allows a company participating in a cartel to submit evidence of a new, separate cartel and get credit for its cooperation in relation to both the "old" and "new" cartels.
