International Arbitration

China has been building up and improving its legal regime for recognition and enforcement of foreign awards since the nation joined the New York Convention in the 1980’s. In this article we give an overview on the key issues regarding the enforcement of foreign awards in this jurisdiction, taking into account the recent developments and opening-up reforms. 
On 17 February, the Peruvian Congress presented Bill No. 7161/2020-CR amending the Arbitration Law, which alters some of the requirements for arbitrations in Peru. The aim of the reform, it has been pointed out, is to include minimum quality standards in awards issued in the framework of national arbitrations. However, the proposed text affects key issues such as the nationality of arbitrations or the choice of arbitrators in a way that could end up being detrimental to the current good position of arbitration in Peru.
