Asset preservation endeavour before Lianyungang Intermediate People's Court

On 27 November 2019, pursuant to the MAA, the Lianyungang Intermediate People's Court in Jiangsu Province, China (ie, a mainland court) assisted the HKIAC in an arbitration which had been referred to it by the HKIAC. The arbitration successfully completed a cross-border asset preservation valued at more than $20 million in Lianyungang city. This is the first case in China where the HKIAC – having delivered papers directly to a mainland court under the auspices of the MAA – has successfully completed an asset preservation within 60 days of the MAA coming into effect, thus effectively safeguarding the parties' legitimate rights and interests.
