Chinese Arbitration

A Selection of Pitfalls

Edited by: Association for International Arbitration

A prosperous economy goes hand in hand with a competent, impartial, and efficient legal system. International investment is only possible when the business parties are confident that adequate dispute resolution possibilities exist. A conference on "Arbitration in China" was held by the Association for International Arbitration (AIA) in March 2009. This book - a product of the conference - highlights the newest opportunities and updates - for lawyers, arbitrators, mediators, and investors - about arbitration and mediation in the event a dispute were to arise with Chinese partners. The book includes the conference's opening remarks, presented by the president of the AIA, Johan Billiet, who highlights the differences between Chinese and 'Western' arbitration. Other contributions include: the issue of mediation and arbitration in China * International Chamber of Commerce arbitration in China * arbitration differences between China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission and other Asian institutions, such as Hong Kong International Arbitration Center, Singapore International Arbitration Center, Korean Commercial Arbitration Board, and Japan Commercial Arbitration Association * recent developments in Chinese arbitration * the issue of recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards in China.
