About the Topic:
justWinning a court judgment is by no means the "happay ever after" ending, it is just the beginning of another judicial procedure to recognize and enforce such winning judgment. As regard to the different legal, cultural, stages of economic developments and the rule of law, especially the lack of trust among countries, foreign judgements easily may lead to refused recognition, regardless of international cooperation.The growth of China’s investments and trade with other countries, especially European Union (“EU”) States, have brought about a corresponding increase in cross-border litigations involving EU states’ judgements upon Chinese domiciles. Thus, for foreign parties engaged in disputes with Chinese domiciliary, increasingly a major problem is to secure the recognition and enforcement of an EU court’s decision in Chinese courts. Likewise, there are similar problems for recognition and enforcement of Chinese judgements in the courts of other countries. This presentation is mainly focused on the laws and regulations, current judicial practice, challenges and developments for the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgements in China.
