Categories: China Legal Trends

On 21 Dec. 2021, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) released three guiding cases on arbitration in three areas including tourism contract disputes, construction contract disputes and investment contract disputes, aiming to promote the advantages of arbitration in professional dispute resolution.

The MOJ is the competent authority to guide and supervise arbitration work nationwide, and its Public Legal Services Administration is specifically responsible for such work.

In recent years, the MOJ has supported arbitration institutions to set up professional arbitration work platforms for securities and futures, intellectual property rights, construction projects, etc., built a special arbitration platform for tourism complaint disputes, and established the connecting mechanism between tourism complaints mediation and arbitration.

This is the first time that the MOJ has made a clear stance on arbitration supervision and support by issuing guiding cases. Prior to this, China's Supreme People's Court and Supreme People's Procuratorate have often issued their opinions by releasing guiding cases.
