Chinese Antitrust Exceptionalism
April 8, 2021 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
China’s rise as an economic superpower has caused growing anxieties in the West. Europe is now applying stricter scrutiny over takeovers by Chinese state-owned giants, while the United States is imposing sanctions on leading Chinese technology firms such as Huawei, TikTok and WeChat. Given the escalating geopolitical tensions between China and the West, are there any hopeful prospects for economic globalization?
Dr. Angela Huyue Zhang, University of Hong Kong professor, will provide her insights on antitrust law at the webinar hosted by the 21st Century China Center.
She considers antitrust law to be the most important and least understood tactic that China can deploy to counter western sanctions. Zhang reveals how China has transformed antitrust law into a powerful economic weapon, supplying theory and case studies to explain its strategic application over the course of the Sino-U.S. tech war.
More than a legal analysis, Zhang offers a political and economic study of our contemporary moment. She demonstrates that Chinese exceptionalism—as manifested in the way China regulates and is regulated, is reshaping global regulation and that future cooperation relies on the West comprehending Chinese idiosyncrasies and China achieving greater transparency through integration with its western rivals.
Please join us at 5 pm PT on April 8 to hear an engaging discussion.
