Om boka

China's success in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) in the last decade is undisputed, and unprecedented. It is currently the second largest FDI recipient in the world, a success partially due to China's efforts to enter into bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and other international investment instruments. The second title to publish in the new Oxford International Arbitration Series is a comprehensive commentary on Chinese BITs.

Chinese investment treaties have typically provided international forums for settling investment disputes such as the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). Given the continuous growth of FDI in China, the emergence of state-investor disagreements in China and the dramatic rise of investment treaty based arbitrations world wide in recent years, it is anticipated that there will be an increasing number of investment arbitrations involving the central and local
governments of China. This book will provide a detailed review and analysis of China's approach to foreign investment. It will consider the current role of investment treaties in China's foreign economic policy, analyse and interpret the key provisions of the BITs, and discuss the future agenda of
China's investment programme. It will look at how this investment regime interconnects with the domestic system and consider the implications for a foreign investor in China.

«..provides immensely reliable and useful information about Chinese investment protection law...Chinese Investment Treaties is an excellent guide that will be immensely useful to specialists, practitioners and academics alike»

Christian J. Tams, German Yearbook of International Law

«This book is the first study of Chinese BIT practices. Although it focusses on Chinese treaties, the authors do draw comparisons with other investment treaties. They also analyse arbitration case-law from investment tribunals under BITs not concluded by China, therefore giving the book a wider scope and making it a truly useful tool for any investment law specialist»
