China in the International Commercial Dispute Resolution Arena: The Establishment of the China International Commercial Court

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Established as a state-led legal infrastructure in 2018, the China International Commercial Court reflects China’s ambition to race in the international commercial dispute resolution arena. Having formed a one-stop platform that integrates alternative dispute resolution mechanisms into the litigation process, the China International Commercial Court manifests a significant legal innovation in the development of China’s judicial system. Nevertheless, this Court still has room for improvement, in particular in the jurisdiction, judge appointment, proceeding language and the recognition and enforcement of judgments, compared to its Eurasian counterparts. Thus, for the furtherance of internationalisation and global competitiveness, it is well worth Chinese authorities’ consideration about expanding the jurisdiction of the China International Commercial Court, better incorporating foreign expertise in the litigation process and promoting judicial cooperation with other countries.
