Terence Wong, Winston & Strawn’s international arbitration partner in Asia, contributed to a recent publication with Law Press called Chinese Engineering Contractors Operating Overseas: Risk Assessment and Management. The colossal development of the construction industry in China and its increasing role in overseas projects have necessitated Chinese contractors to familiarize themselves with international contractual practices and with the various legal environments in which they operate. These legal considerations may differ from one country to another and those specific to China. The book provides insights and practical advice to Chinese contractors by examining the complexity of legal and contracting issues that arise in international projects and challenges pertaining to the diversity of systems.
