China throws hat into ring as international dispute resolution hub

Monday, 3rd July 2018

"Litigants from countries that are part of the proposed Belt and Road Initiative, which aims to promote cooperation between Eurasian countries, are being encouraged to use China as a centre for commercial dispute resolution.

China’s Supreme People’s Court said this weekend it would build an international commercial dispute resolution procedure to improve judicial cooperation among countries involved in the initiative. The courts will preside over large international commercial disputes involving more than 300m yuan (£34.3m).

Lu Guixiang, a member of the judicial committee of the country’s highest court - the Supreme People’s Court - said it would be unveiling two courts in the citites of Shenzhen and Xi’an. According to the Supreme People’s Court website, they will be unveiled this week having first been announced earlier this year. 

‘The two courts will give efficient and professional resolutions for litigants who decide to resolve their disputes in our country, and we promise to equally protect their rights, no matter where they are from,’ Guixiang said. ‘We’ll also fully respect litigants’ opinions, and supply them with convenient and low-cost services, whether they choose mediation, arbitration or trial to resolve their disputes,’ he added.

An international commercial expert committee to help mediate and offer advice on how to search and use foreign laws in Chinese courts will also be set up."
