MyCC to probe Grab-Uber merger

KUALA LUMPUR (July 13): The Malaysia Competition Commission (MyCC) will investigate the merger between Uber and Grab in Malaysia, which has resulted in Grab having a monopoly in the country’s ride-hailing business.

“MyCC has taken preliminary action and conducted its first discussion with Uber and Grab on March 30, 2018, which was four days after the two companies announced their merger position,” the Domestic Trade and Consumerism Ministry said in a statement today.
