Secretary for Justice to visit Shenzhen

The Secretary for Justice, Mr Rimsky Yuen, SC, will visit Shenzhen tomorrow (January 6) to attend the presentation ceremony of appointment letters and training session for Hong Kong arbitrators of the Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration (SCIA).

Organised by the SCIA and other organisations including the Qianhai Authority, the event will provide an opportunity for Hong Kong arbitrators, in particular those who are new on the SCIA's panel of arbitrators, to know more about the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Co-operation Zone, the China (Guangdong) Pilot Free Trade Zone Qianhai and Shekou Area of Shenzhen, the demonstration zone for law and order and the SCIA arbitration rules. Opportunities in the Mainland's legal services market will also be discussed at the event.

Mr Yuen will speak at the event and visit the Qianhai Exhibition Hall and the SCIA international arbitration court in Qianhai. He will return to Hong Kong in the afternoon of the same day.

Established in 1983, the SCIA has been promoting co-operation in arbitration between Hong Kong and Guangzhou.
