The new Thai Trade Competition Act was enacted on 7 July 2017 and came into force on October 5 of the same year, replacing the previous Trade Competition Act. The 2017 Act established the Thai Trade Competition Commission as a new independent enforcement authority, and aimed to establish a more robust trade competition regime. In this newsletter, we introduce three rulings recently declared by the Thai Trade Competition Commission, which are worthy of attention from Japanese companies doing business in Thailand.
