With the rapid growth of the Chinese economy, international business between foreign companies and Chinese companies is commonplace. The presence of dispute is inevitable. Should a commercial dispute arise concerning international trade in China, there is enormous potential for complex legal problems to arise.

Parties need to know whether their rights will be protected. Arbitration presents itself as a practical alternative to the traditional mode of courts.
