Chapter 13: The Philippine competition law dilemma: US–EU fusion to tension?

Alizedney M. Ditucalan


This chapter analyses the implications of combining United States and European Union competition law systems in the Philippine Competition Act. It argues that fusion created a complex regime that has a downside effect in terms of the administrability and predictability of the law. The chapter concludes that it would have been more pragmatic and sound (and the result less complicated) for the lawmakers to have singly focused on the US antitrust legal system as the model in designing the provisions of the PCA, both from an institutional and a normative perspective. For one, the Philippine competition law norms, prior to the passage of the PCA, have always been aligned with the US antitrust law system.
