"The 2012 US Model Bilateral Investment Treaty...: Challenges or Opportunites for China?"
Date/Time: Monday, October 14, 2013  12:00:PM
Location: Room 118

Join the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade in welcoming

 

Professor Jie Huang of the Shanghai University of International Business and Economics School of Law

for a Lunchtime Presentation on:

 

“The 2012 US Model Bilateral Investment Treaty and Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement’s Investment Chapter:

Challenges or Opportunities for China?”

 

Monday, October 14, 2013

12:00 – 1:00 pm, Room 118

 

Free Pizza and Drinks will be provided at 12:00

with the Presentation beginning at 12:10 pm

 

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.
