Dr. Xinzhu Zhang, Director at Global Economics Group, Dr. Vanessa Yanhua Zhang, Principal at Global Economics Group, and Howard Chang, Principal at Global Economics Group, provide some background on the merger approval process in China and the InBev acquisition by Anheuser-Busch. In The InBev and Anheuser-Busch Merger in China: A View from Economists¬Ě (Global Competition Policy, December 2008), the authors discuss the implications of China’s Ministry of Commerce’s (MOFCOM’s) decision and its other statements on merger policy for the future of merger control in China and explain why the decision creates an important precedent for antitrust and merger policy in China and why that future decision will continue to shape China’s policies.
