Mainland China is not an UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration (Model Law) country. The Model Law is not adopted as a whole, and arbitration practice in Mainland China is perceived to be different from international practice. With the significance of the Chinese economy and rise in outbound investments from China (due in no small part to the Belt and Road Initiative), there has been a surge in international arbitrations involving Chinese parties, both within and outside Mainland China.

Drawing on the authors’ experience in arbitrations involving Chinese parties, we have prepared a commentary examining key measures taken by the Chinese government in recent years to promote arbitration in Mainland China.
