Panel Discussion 1: From the Perspective of Judicial Review: How does China Move Towards an International Arbitration Hub? (Chinese)

- As the latest China arbitration law was enacted twenty years ago, the law itself hardly keeps up with ever-changing international arbitration developments. In order to build a friendly and open environment for international arbitration in China, local Chinese courts are playing a significant role in the judicial review of foreign arbitral awards. Can foreign arbitral awards be recognized and enforced in China? Are these judicial review judgments effective in a country with a civil law system? What measures does China take to build an arbitration-friendly centre? This panel will invite Chinese judges and international practitioners to explore these questions and discuss international arbitration evolution in China.

This report identifies the most used technologies to support the practice of international arbitration today, describes features and functionalities that may enhance the arbitral process, provides commentary, resources about useful procedural practices and potential pitfalls that can be avoided.
