On 12 November 2013, the Competition Commission of Singapore (the “CCS”) announced the launch of the first-ever ASEAN Experts Group on Competition (the “AEGC”) one-stop web portal. The portal aims to provide updates on competition-related issues and developments in the ASEAN region, such as information on competition law in each of the 10 ASEAN member states. The web portal also serves as a convenient platform to facilitate knowledge sharing and encourage deeper interaction among the ASEAN competition authorities.

In addition to the web portal, a set of competition advocacy collaterals in the form of a brochure and pamphlet has also been developed to raise awareness among the general public on competition policy and law in the region.

The CCS chairs the AEGC Work Group on “Developing Strategy and Tools for Regional Advocacy”. The web portal and collaterals were officially launched at the 12th AEGC meeting on 12 November 2013 in Cebu, Philippines.
