China is one of the most important business partners of Germany. Yet, trade between Chinese and European parties is subject to special challenges and risks. Arbitration provides the backbone for such trade. As it remains difficult, if not impossible, and at least risky to enforce court judgements of China in Germany and vice versa, arbitration clauses provide the necessary security to enforce rights.
On the occasion of the visit of a high ranked delegation of the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) to Europe, the Chinese European Arbitration Centre (CEAC) jointly with the Frankfurt Chamber of Commerce (IHK) organizes a dialogue discussing a variety of hot topics relating to arbitration of China related matters. The event will take place on

in the large conference room of the law firm Hengeler Mueller, Bockenheimer Landstraße 24, 60323 Frankfurt am Main.
