Description

The Competition Act 2004 has significantly changed the business landscape in Singapore. The Act, which came into force on 1 January 2006, was introduced in order to create a level playing field for businesses big and small.

The law seeks to prohibit anti-competitive activities that unduly prevent, restrict or distort competition.
