China's Supreme People's Court (SPC) on Sunday launched the International Commercial Expert Committee (ICEC), with a membership of 32 domestic and foreign experts.
"The ICEC, which supports the settlement of international commercial disputes through mediation, arbitration and lawsuits, was set up to enhance international cooperation and facilitate the work of international commercial courts," the SPC said.
Coming from different legal systems and jurisdictions, the first batch of committee members includes leaders of international organizations, legal experts and scholars, and experienced judges and lawyers.
The SPC established its first two international commercial courts in Shenzhen in Guangdong Province, and Xi'an in Shaanxi Province on June 29.
The resumes and photos of the committee members will be published on the international commercial court website in both Chinese and English.
