A rising number of civil and maritime disputes involving international elements were dealt with by Chinese courts in the first half of this year, according to data released on Thursday.
Between January and June, 13,645 civil cases and 7,430 marine lawsuits involving foreign factors were concluded, a rise of 34.8 percent and 10.4 percent year-on-year, respectively, according to data provided by the Supreme People’s Court, China’s top court, at a seminar in Beijing.
Courts have also increased judicial exchange with other countries and improved the way they handle international commercial disputes to serve the development of the Belt and Road Initiative and promote higher-level opening-up, the SPC said.
