Publications are starting to emerge about the Belt and Road. Some focus on applicable laws; others are in country-by-country format providing statistics and other background. At the moment, there seem to be few practical guides. 

Our series of publications aims to fill that gap. We will tell you about our own experience with our clients working on the Belt and Road. Within each of our booklets, we will offer practical tips regarding the Belt and Road subject in question.

In this publication, we offer ten recommendations on how best to resolve Belt and Road disputes.

10 May 2024 marked a significant legal turning point on the enforcement of keepwell deeds as the Hong Kong Court of Appeal (the “CA”) overturned the judgment handed down by Justice Harris in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance (the “CFI”) in May 2023 on the Peking Founder case (the “CFI Judgment”) , which was the first time enforceability of keepwell deeds was subject to scrutiny in a Hong Kong court . The CA overturned the decision in the CFI Judgment which had dismissed the claims of three of the four plaintiffs and granted declaratory relief in an amount of approximately US$1.7 billion to those three plaintiffs (the “CA Judgment”) . This is a significant development for offshore creditors in cross-border financing who rely on, or are concerned with, the enforceability of keepwell deeds.
