November 2012 – Partner James Hosking is quoted in a new article in Global Arbitration Review on trends in Chinese outbound investment around the world, and the dispute resolution options available to parties when disputes arise. The article touches on many of the themes discussed by the panelists at the recent GAR Live conference in Hong Kong in October on the same topic. James, one the panelists at that event, explores the investment environment for Chinese companies in the United States and the potential protection afforded under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act for Chinese state-owned enterprises. This is an important issue given the role state-owned enterprises are playing in China’s “go-out” strategy.
James also comments on the latest generation of Chinese bilateral investment treaties (BITs), including the stalled negotiations for a China-US BIT. To read the article in full please click here.
