An Introduction to Professor Huang’s Presentation: The 2012 U.S. Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) model reflects the new international investment law that the U.S. will pursue in its BITs and Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) negotiations. This new international investment law requires host states to provide pre-establishment treatment and negative list; combine environment and labor protection with investment; improve transparency in domestic legislation, neutrality of government in competition, and regulation of state-owned enterprises. It also emphasizes the legitimacy of host states’ regulation of financial service, and it does not require investors to exhaust local remedies before submitting a dispute to international investment arbitration. The mechanism of final investor-state investment arbitration and the legitimacy of host state’s regulation of financial service are consistent with China’s interests.
