HONG KONG, July 21 Hong Kong's newly-formed
Competition Commission has named Stanley Wong as its first chief
executive officer, the regulatory body said on Monday.
Wong, a Canadian lawyer, will become chief executive on
Sept. 3, the commission said.
Hong Kong introduced competition legislation in 2012 in a
bid to curb anti-competitive behaviour across a range of
sectors. The Competition Commission, which will enforce the new
rules, is in the process of getting staffed and consulting on
how the legislation will be implemented.
Wong has worked with the European Commission's antitrust
division, where he helped train antitrust officials at a Chinese
antitrust agency, the National Development and Reform Commission
and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce.
