The 2014 Summit was the second to be held, the first having taken place in 2013. It featured the official release of the English language version of the BAC publication, Commercial Dispute Resolution in China: Annual Review and Preview (2014) (the Annual Review), which was prepared by leading Chinese experts from a number of different industries. The Summit attracted almost 100 professionals from China, the UK and other nations. The participants comprised leading academics, Queen’s Counsel and experienced lawyers from top law firms worldwide. The 2014 Summit covered a greater number of sectors than that of 2013, including (inter alia) arbitration, mediation, construction, real estate, intellectual property (IP) rights, energy, investment, international trade and finance.
