ENFORCEMENT IN CHINA

Speaker:

Edmund Wan, Partner, Dispute Resolution, King & Wood Mallesons

Co-Presenter TBC

With China’s economy developing rapidly over the last two decades, many foreign enterprises have invested in the country and are now doing business with Chinese partners. But because of the slowdown in the global economy, which has also affected the Chinese market, the number of commercial disputes between foreign investors and their Chinese business partners has increased.

In this session, we will cover:

  • Enforcement in China
  • Sovereign immunity
  • How to draft a dispute resolution/ arbitration clause
  • Dispute resolution in practice

11.30 - 12.30pm

CROSS-BORDER FUNDS FLOW

Speaker:

Minny Siu, Partner, Banking & Finance, King & Wood Mallesons

David Lam, Partner, Banking & Finance, King & Wood Mallesons

China’s regulators have recently announced changes which, broadly speaking, further ease the controls on financing between the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and offshore jurisdictions as well as the provision of security given in support of that financing.  The changes are significant because they facilitate cross-border funding through the provision of loans offshore, and allow cash held in the PRC to be swept offshore.  That funding will be used to fund cross-border trade, offshore investments and acquisitions and enable onshore treasury operations to be managed in global treasury pools. The changes further evidence the PRC’s determination to gradually ease capital account controls.

In this session, we will cover:

  • Inbound Finance
  • Outbound Finance
  • Outbound Credit Support
  • Inbound Credit Support
  • Treasury Pooling arrangements         

12.30pm - 1.00pm
