About the Summit
The purposes of the summit are to promote China’s international trade relationships, as well as to increase mutual understanding between Chinese and Western culture. As the largest developing nation and economy, the current and future legal environment in China has come to the attention of the entire world. The 2014 Summit was both a platform for promoting and ensuring harmonious economic and technical exchanges and a great opportunity to present China’s “soft power” to the world. This is the third time we are hosting the Annual Summit on Commercial Dispute Resolution in China. Following the pattern of the 2014 Summit, this year’s event will share with the participants the latest development in commercial arbitration and mediation in China in a number of specialised fields, and it will also make some predictions on the future legal environment in China. According to the latest statistics, BAC has received 1,015 new cases that together involve an estimate of RMB 17.5 billion in 2015. Since its establishment in 1995, BAC has administered over 25,000 cases. The sum in dispute has reached RMB 140 billion with the highest claim amount of RMB 10 billion.
The 2015 Summit will cover a greater number of sectors than that of 2013 and 2014, including (inter alia) arbitration, mediation, construction project, real estate, intellectual property (IP) rights, energy, investment, international trade and finance, etc. This conference will be held for one day and in form of public conference, which will focus on commercial disputes in China and offer an overview of available dispute resolution mechanisms.
