KWM issues Think Tank Report: Law and Practice under the Belt & Road Initiative IV (2021)

In the year 2020, the world was hit hard by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. No part of the economy was shielded from the pandemic. Despite the challenges, the BRI construction continued in a proactive and reality-based manner, demonstrating strong resilience and vitality. The progressing of the BRI added great momentum to the global pandemic fight and the economic stability. 

The BRI represents not only a win-win cooperation in the economic field, but also a dialogue and exchange between civilizations in different jurisdictions. As a global law firm rooted in China, King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) endeavors to give full play to its role in complex legal environment. 

As the fourth instalment of the Series, Think Tank Report: Law and Practice under the Belt & Road Initiative IV covers legal systems, legal risks and typical cases in such areas as investment, project contracting, project financing, and dispute resolution in the BRI countries. The report embodies the collective experience and wisdom of KWM lawyers in advising on BRI projects. The report comprises three parts: the first part is a summary of KWM lawyers' experience and professional advice in overseas investment and project contracting over the years; the second part is an in-depth interpretation and analysis of laws, policies and cases across a number of specific BRI countries; and the last part is an introduction to the legal system of some Russian-speaking countries and a foreign investment guide in such countries.

This publication, written by KWM’s lawyers with rich practice experience in the BRI projects, is intended to provide some meaningful and insightful reference for enterprises and institutions participating in the development of the BRI, and help enterprises “go global” and “bring in”, so as to achieve their business goals in the post-pandemic era.

    2020年10月12日,经济合作与发展组织(“OECD”)分别发布了关于“支柱一”和“支柱二”方案的蓝图报告(“支柱一蓝图报告”和“支柱二蓝图报告”,合称为“支柱蓝图报告”),向公众征询意见。通过该做法,OECD推后了其此前关于OECD成员国能在今年年底前达成全球技术性和政治性共识的期望。考虑到世界正聚焦于COVID-19及美国总统选举,这并不令人感到惊讶。

    2020年6月,美国决定“暂停”加入经济合作与发展组织(“OECD”)的支柱一和支柱二方案,该方案为OECD税基侵蚀与利润转移(BEPS)项目的“第二阶段”。尽管如此,OECD仍然强调,美国既未退出谈判,也没有停止磋商。这一事件及时提醒我们,对于实施OECD的支柱一和支柱二方案,还存在着一系列障碍。本文对相关方案进行了概述,并就在国家间无法达成共识的情况下推进这些方案的替代性方法展开了思考。
