eBRAM participates in the 20th Anniversary of CEPA – Review and Outlook Symposium

15 December 2023

eBRAM was honoured to be part of a seminar organised by the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce, Hong Kong, in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of CEPA on 15 December 2023.

CEPA (“Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement between the Mainland and Hong Kong”) is one of the country’s important policies to benefit Hong Kong by enabling Hong Kong’s business community to explore the vast mainland market and deeply integrate into the country’s economic and trade development.

During the event, Dr Thomas So JP, Chairman of eBRAM International Online Dispute Resolution Centre, highlighted that CEPA enables lawyers from Hong Kong to take professional exams in Mainland China. It also relaxes restrictions on partnership associations of law firms in the two regions and has arrangements such as mutual recognition on enforcement of court judgments and mutual enforcement of arbitration. All these provisions enable Hong Kong to offer cross-border dispute resolution services.

Dr So hopes that the legal and dispute resolution profession will further collaborate with Mainland institutions to foster exchanges and create more opportunities for practitioners in Hong Kong.
