6 Belt & Road Guiding Instances and AmCham Converse | 六个“一带一路”指导性案例与中美商会座谈

On February 25, 2019, the Supreme People’s Courtroom (the “SPC”) of China introduced 6 new Guiding Instances (“GCs”), bringing the full variety of China’s de facto binding precedents to 112.  Extra importantly, this marked the launch of the initial established of GCs that are associated to the improvement of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (the “BRI”), demonstrating the SPC’s endeavours in advertising China’s worldwide investment decision program by clarifying associated legal ambiguities by means of GCs.

The China Guiding Instances Job (the “CGCP”) welcomes this step taken by the SPC.  In actuality, in June 2017, through a seminar titled “Guiding Instances and China’s Belt and Road Initiative” organized by the American Chamber of Commerce in China(AmCham), Dr. Mei Gechlik, Founder and Director of the CGCP, described the vital part of GCs in the improvement of the BRI.  She also urged Choose GUO Feng of the SPC, who was yet another speaker that day and who oversees the variety of GCs, to look at releasing BRI-associated GCs (see https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/amcham-converse-visit-tongzhou-court-food-chinese-drugs-mei-gechlik). In light of this recommendation produced in 2017, it is encouraging to see the SPC choose this step now.

Given the great importance of these BRI-associated GCs, in this issue of China Legislation Join (“CLC”), the CGCP has published its superior-quality bilingual edition of Guiding Case No. 107 (“GC107” Sinochem Global (Abroad) Pte. Ltd. v. ThyssenKrupp Metallurgical Solutions GmbH, A Dispute more than a Deal for the Global Sale and Acquire of Goods), alongside one another with explanatory endnotes and a part titled “CGCP Notes” that offers pertinent observations and translations of suitable legal provisions to deepen readers’ understanding of the GC.  Related bilingual variations of the other 5 BRI-associated GCs will be published in the remaining 2019 concerns of CLC.


A exceptional contribution produced by the CGCP is the project’s comparison of GC107 with the final judgment which GC107 summarizes (see image earlier mentioned yellow highlights).  The comparison reveals how the SPC, by means of the planning of GC107, enhanced the reasoning of the original judgment and then laid out in the “Main Points of the Adjudication” part of GC107 clearer rules that judges managing related subsequent cases are expected to adhere to.  The following paragraph demonstrates portion of the “Main Points of the Adjudication” part of GC107:


2. In a agreement for the international sale and obtain of merchandise, if the merchandise delivered by the seller have flaws, [the circumstance] must not be regarded as a circumstance constituting a fundamental breach of the agreement as provided for in the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the Global Sale of Goods, so extended as the customer can, by means of realistic endeavours, use the merchandise or resell the merchandise. (emphasis added) | 在国际货物买卖合同中,卖方交付的货物虽然存在缺陷,但只要买方经过合理努力就能使用货物或转售货物,不应视为构成《联合国国际货物销售合同公约》规定的根本违约的情形。(强调后加)

Words and phrases in daring vary from those in the original, final judgment.  For additional discussion of the variances and the resulting implications for legal practice, see GC107.
