About the topic:
The last decade or so has witnessed China’s intensifying efforts to reshape its legal framework for international commercial litigation, which echoes its advancement of the “One Belt and One Road Initiative” and the policy of strengthening foreign-related rule of law. However, to this end, only piece-meal measures were adopted mainly by the Supreme People’s Court (SPC). The SPC, leading lower Chinese courts, has been zealous in advancing the reform for international commercial litigation by introducing such instruments as international commercial courts (CICCs), anti-suit injunctions, forum non conveniens and de jure reciprocity favouring recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. Such attempts may help modernize China’s mechanism of international commercial litigation and more are still expected on the way. Although what the SPC has been doing is moving closer towards the global mainstream and on the right track, to go global, deep reforms are further needed for the Chinese regime of international commercial litigation.
