On December 31, 2015, the ASEAN Economic Community had officially been
launched. The direct impact of this policy will be on the field of Competition Law
which differs from one country to another. The Competition Law plays an important
role in ensuring fair and equitable business practices within the ASEAN. The
ASEAN has its Regional Guidelines on Competition Policy to assist its member
countries to increase their awareness about fair and equitable business practices. This
policy only serves as a guideline and has not been adopted as an enforceable rule.
Therefore, the business competition in the domestic market involving the ASEAN
members company is still being regulated by each ASEAN member country. This
paper examines and analyzes the role of the competition law in addressing the intra-
ASEAN members unfair business practices and the needs for the harmonization of
the competition law within the ASEAN Countries as a transition to promulgate the
ASEAN Competition Law.
