Su Sun Publishes Article on China’s Antitrust Fines.

Senior Vice President Su Sun publishes a coauthored article “The Draft Fining Guidelines and the Future of Antitrust Fines in China” on Journal of Antitrust Enforcement. In this article, Dr. Sun and coauthor, Professor Chenying Zhang of Tsinghua University Law School, apply the formula for calculating fines proposed in China’s draft antitrust fining guidelines to data on historical non-merger case decisions issued by China’s antitrust agencies. They find that these predicted fines are significantly higher than actual fines imposed by the antitrust agencies. Thus, the article predicts that antitrust fines in China will be higher in the future once such fining guidelines are implemented.
