Unfortunately, both domestic and international business environments have been changing significantly since the promulgation of the Law in 2004. There is strong demand for Vietnamese companies to participate deeply in new global value chains. The 4th Industrial Revolution has facilitated the emergence of new business models that the current Competition Law fails to regulate. Those business modes have changed the market structure and directly affected competition.
