KWM Issues Think Tank Report: Law and Practice under the Belt & Road Initiative III (Chinese)

The Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road (B&R), introduced by President Xi Jinping in 2013, is a strategic framework for China’s deeper engagement and participation in the world’s economic and trade activities designed for mutual benefits. Since 2013, China has signed 170 inter-governmental cooperation agreements with 122 countries and 29 international organisations. During this time, Chinese enterprises have been actively implementing the "going global" strategy, thus becoming the main driver behind the B&R.

As early as in 2017, King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) and the KWM Institute jointly issued the Think Tank Report: Legal Practice under the Belt & Road Initiative, providing a summary of challenges and practical solutions for governments and enterprises involved in B&R projects. 

The third instalment of the series, Think Tank Report: Law and Practice under the Belt & Road Initiative III continues our analysis of legal systems, risks and representative cases across investment, project contracting, project financing, and dispute resolution in key B&R countries. The report embodies KWM’s first-hand collective experience and knowledge gained in the process of providing legal services to clients. It is structured into two parts: the first part is a summary of KWM lawyers' experience and professional advice in overseas investment and project contracting over the recent years. The second part is an in-depth interpretation and analysis of laws, policies and cases across a number of specific B&R countries.

This publication, written by KWM’s lawyers with rich practice experience in B&R projects, is expected to provide some meaningful and insightful reference for public and private organisations participating in the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative.

    2020年10月12日,经济合作与发展组织(“OECD”)分别发布了关于“支柱一”和“支柱二”方案的蓝图报告(“支柱一蓝图报告”和“支柱二蓝图报告”,合称为“支柱蓝图报告”),向公众征询意见。通过该做法,OECD推后了其此前关于OECD成员国能在今年年底前达成全球技术性和政治性共识的期望。考虑到世界正聚焦于COVID-19及美国总统选举,这并不令人感到惊讶。

    2020年6月,美国决定“暂停”加入经济合作与发展组织(“OECD”)的支柱一和支柱二方案,该方案为OECD税基侵蚀与利润转移(BEPS)项目的“第二阶段”。尽管如此,OECD仍然强调,美国既未退出谈判,也没有停止磋商。这一事件及时提醒我们,对于实施OECD的支柱一和支柱二方案,还存在着一系列障碍。本文对相关方案进行了概述,并就在国家间无法达成共识的情况下推进这些方案的替代性方法展开了思考。
