The London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) is one of the world's leading international arbitration institutions. With English law continuing to be a predominant choice of law for many international contracts, the LCIA has seen a record number of arbitration cases referred to the LCIA under the LCIA Rules in the past years.

In the Far East, the Shanghai International Arbitration Court (SHIAC 上海国际仲裁中心) (formerly known as the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission Shanghai Commission) is strategically poised as an arbitration centre located in mainland China to service both Chinese parties and an increasing number of foreign parties in the resolution of commercial disputes.

Different markets and regulatory regimes give rise to different needs and requirements for arbitration users. Through the past decades, the LCIA and SHIAC have both shown a tailored approach to address these market demands while striving to achieve the common goal of offering efficient, impartial and effective dispute resolution services at an international standard.

China's Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) published the draft Export Control Law for public comments via a circular on 16th June 2017. If enacted, the China's new Export Control Law will be the first set of comprehensive and unified export control legislation in China, which is aimed at upgrading the country's existing regime consisting of various administrative regulations and rules.
In March 2019, the State Council issued its legislative proposal for 2018. Amongst the proposed bills for submission to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress this year is the Export Control Law.
