Chinese, U.S. Officials Meet On Global Antitrust Issues

Justice Department Assistant Attorney General Bill Baer and Federal Trade Commission Chairwoman Edith Ramirez met on January 9 with officials from China’s three antitrust agencies: Ministry of Commerce Vice Minister Jiang Zengwei, National Development and Reform Commission Vice Minister Hu Zucai and State Administration for Industry and Commerce Vice Minister Sun Hongzhi.

The meetings took place at the Ministry of Commerce in Beijing. This was the second high-level meeting of the agencies since the Justice Department and Federal Trade Commission signed the antitrust memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Chinese antitrust agencies in July 2011, the Department of Justice said. The officials discussed promoting competition in a global economy and various aspects of general civil and criminal antitrust enforcement, according to the department.

The MOU, Justice said, is designed to promote communication and cooperation among the agencies in the two countries. The MOU provides for periodic high-level consultations among all five agencies.
