Competition policy research center established at HNU
The China Center for Competition Policy was established under a cooperation agreement signed between the Development Research Center of the State Administration for Market Regulation, the Hainan Market Regulation Administration, and Hainan University (HNU) on Sept 28.
In April, Hainan was designated as the first province in the country to pilot strengthened competition policies. The center thus was set up to provide intellectual support for reforming market regulations, eliminating regulations and practices that obstruct fair competition, and creating a world-class business environment.
The China Center for Competition Policy is established at Hainan University on Sept 28.
Zhong Yechang, chairman of the Hainan Federation of Humanities and Social Sciences Circles, noted that the center is the first in Hainan to focus on researching competition policies. He said that the federation will help turn the center into a major research base for social sciences.
In recent years, HNU has made significant strides in the development of social science disciplines and multiple projects have received support from the National Social Science Fund of China. This will help the center lead the country in research on competition policies and apply it in the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Zone (Port), said Wu Yaoting, Party secretary of the university.
