Can I sue Chinese companies in New Zealand and then enforce a New Zealand judgment in China?
New Zealand-China Judgments Recognition and Enforcement
In 2019, due to parallel proceedings, Shenzhen Intermediate People’s Court of China ruled to dismiss the application for enforcing a New Zealand judgment (Americhip, Inc. v. Dean et al. (2018) Yue 03 Min Chu No. 420 ).
The Court of Appeal of New Zealand ruled in 2016 to enforce a Chinese judgment to its full value, which marks the first time that a Chinese monetary judgment has been enforced in New Zealand.
