U.S.-China Business Mediation Center Offers Useful Services (Asian Insider)

Saturday, April 1, 2006 

The U.S.-China Business Mediation Business Center is a joint venture between The International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR) and the China Council for the  Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT). The center provides an alternative to litigation for the resolution of complex and significant commercial disputes between American and Chinese businesses.

As cross-border business between U.S. and Asian interests accelerates, it becomes incumbent upon the senior executives charged with achieving success to explore ways to settle disputes, often exacerbated by cultural and practical differences. Established in 2004, with offices in New York and Beijing, the U.S.-China Business Mediation Center offers a full range of mediation services specifically designed to address business conflict between China and the United States.

Significant features of the center:

  • Specially trained Chinese and American mediators who are aware of the business practices and legal alternatives of both Chinese and American companies.
  • Rules that reflect accepted standards of American and Chinese business mediation and that are familiar to both Chinese and American users as fair and commercially rational.
  • A Code of Ethics endorsed by mediation centers around the world, under the auspices of the Union International des Avocats.

To learn more, please call 212-949-6490 or visit the CPR Web site at www.chinamediation.org.

In conjunction with the Center for International Private Enterprise, CPR has also prepared a bilingual volume, Mediating Disputes Between Chinese and American Businesses. It is available at www.cpradr.org/pubs2004.asp?M=12.1.
