The Chinese market is appealing, but the Chinese legal system is very complicated. A basic understanding of Chinese law is absolutely crucial for companies investing in this fast-growing and potentially huge market. Since China is moving toward a socialist market economy and is increasingly integrated into the world market, some aspects of China's commercial law are different from, while others are moving into line with, those of mature market economies. This book provides an introduction to the Chinese legal system, focusing on laws and regulations on foreign direct investment and highlights recent government policies and measures undertaken to intensify economics reforms so as to meet various challenges arising from China's accession to the World Trade Organization.

This book examines, from the legal perspective, China's process of WTO accession, its commitments to the accession, the implications of such commitments for its trade and legal systems, and its efforts toward WTO compliance. It also discusses the issue of the capacity of the evolving Chinese legal system for ensuring compliance. In particular, the book probes into the trade and legal systems at the turn of the accession and evaluates selected trade and legal issues, including intellectual property, foreign investment law and settlement of trade disputes.

Readership: Academic and practising lawyers; researchers and graduate students in trade, Chinese law, economy and politics; trade officials; and businessmen. Keywords:Reviews:“In this timely book Professor Kong Qingjiang has carefully drawn attention to some of the major issues that China's lawmakers and government officials will have to face. Everyone who wants to understand how to ensure that China gets the most out of its membership of the WTO would benefit from reading this book.”David Wall Professor of International Relations and China Studies Cambridge University “China's accession to the WTO, an important event not only for China but also for the world economy as a whole, has spawned a host of legal issues. Professor Kong Qingjiang, a very able Chinese expert on the subject, examined them with much clarity. This book is invaluable for anyone interested in China's role in the world economy.”Yuji Iwasawa Professor of International Law University of Tokyo “Dr Qingjiang Kong's meticulously researched and well organized study of the legal issues relating to China's accession to the WTO not only lends itself to an understanding of issues around China's WTO commitments and its implications, but also constitutes an important building block in a growing edifice of international public policy studies regarding monitoring China's compliance with its commitments.”Yu Jinsong Professor of International Economic Law Wuhan University “The most important aspect of the book is that it is written in a way that makes it readily accessible to the non-legal scholar. It is not particularly legalistic or overly technical, and the author makes valuable links between the legal aspects and the implications for business and policy analysis. This is refreshing and will greatly increase its appeal … this book is a valuable and highly readable contribution to a very important topic. It is of considerable value to a wide range of users. For teaching purposes one could confidently assign the introductory chapters to MBA and similar programs to provide useful context and background. More specialist readers will find worthwhile overviews of a number of topics in individual chapters.”Journal of Asian Business “Two of the most interesting chapters involve discussion of regulatory regimes for telecommunications and Internet as these existed prior to WTO accession … students and scholars interested in understanding the Chinese government's perspective on WTO accession and performance will find this a readily accessible handbook. As we learn more about the practical implications of China's performance of WTO obligations, Kong's volume may become a useful benchmark against which to measure the changing contours of China's WTO policy.”The China Quarterly “A particularly valuable aspect of the book is its inclusion of case studies of past trade disputes between China and trading parties, which provide a good guide to likely future behaviour … China and the World Trade Organization provides a very useful introduction to and analysis of the issues and developments to date and will be of great benefit to public policy analysts and scholars alike.”Asian-Pacific Economic Literature “This book is ambitious in its coverage and rich in the amount of information supplied. Readers with limited background in the subject matter can expect to benefit from the author's introduction to the topics treated … it should serve as a useful guide for the general public and nonspecialists who are interested in the legal dimensions of China's WTO accession.”The Journal of Asian Studies

This volume concerns several aspects of China's changing market based economy. These include commercial contract enforcement, corporate structures, competition law and other issues related to China's membership in the WTO. In the past two decades, the rapid integration of China's economy into the global marketplace has created obligations and expectations of non-discrimination and regulatory transparency in domestic markets. The Chinese government has responded by demanding better governance within major companies, market sectors and public administration generally. However, as the articles in this volume show, it has struggled to find a corporate structure capable of absorbing external equity investment and participation but still amenable to direct and indirect state guidance. It has also moved cautiously in creating legal controls over unfair competition. Moreover, the protection of state owned enterprises, which serve as vehicles for domestic economic, social and political policy, has been a recurring issue in China's WTO trade disputes.

Building upon a theoretical framework and empirical research, this book provides a thought-provoking analysis of the interests, strategies and challenges that China has faced in developing its Anti-Monopoly Law (AML) in the context of economic globalization. The book comprises three main parts: Part I reviews the directions of convergence of global competition law; Part II provides a contextual analysis of China's market governance and its strategic interests; and Part III examines the latest enforcement of the Anti-Monopoly Law by focusing on the interactions between global actors and China, the relationships between Chinese competition and sectoral regulators, and the enforcement of global competition law norms in the Chinese context. This book is one of the first to provide a critical understanding of China's experience as a new competition regulator, set against the background of the plural sources of global competition laws.

China's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) has been hailed as the biggest coming-out party in the history of capitalism. Its membership eventually will contribute to higher standards of living for its citizens and increased growth for its economy. But why would the Chinese communist regime voluntarily agree to comply with the many complex rules of the global trading system since it has already become the world's seventh largest trading country while avoiding these constraints by remaining outside the system? The answer to this question forms the basis for this new book. Nicholas Lardy explores the many pressures on the Chinese government, both external and internal, to comply with the standards of the rule-based international trading system. Lardy points out that, prior to entry into the WTO, China enjoyed high growth rates and more foreign direct investment than any other emerging economy. He draws on a wealth of scholarship and experience to explain how China's leadership expects to leverage the increased foreign competition inherent in its WTO commitments to accelerate its domestic economic reform program, leading to the shrinkage and transformation of inefficient, money-losing companies and hastening the development of a commercial credit culture in its banks. Lardy answers a number of other questions about China's new WTO membership, including its effects on bilateral trade with the United States; the possibility that China will use its power to reshape the WTO in the future; the degree to which the terms of China's entry were more or less demanding than those for other new members; the ability of China's economy to successfully open to new imports; and the prospects for new growth in various sectors of China's economy made possible by WTO accession. This book will become an important tool for those who wish to understand China's new role in the global trading system, to take advantage of the new opportunities for investment in China, or simply to gain a better understanding of what former President Clinton called a "once in a generation event."
