Twelve years to sharpen one sword, but can it cut? : Does China’s new bankruptcy law provide adequate protection for foreign creditors?, La Trobe University, October 1 2010.
This thesis investigates the effectiveness of China’s new 2006 Enterprise Bankruptcy Law (EBL) to provide protection to foreign creditors. The unprecedented growth of the Chinese economy over the past decade led to the development of a new bankruptcy regime intended to meet international standards. An analysis of select Chinese bankruptcy cases provides an understanding of endogenous problems with the current business framework, law and regulation in China. This thesis seeks to answer the following question: Does the new Chinese EBL provide adequate protection for foreign creditors? The working hypothesis of this thesis is that the answer to this question is negative: the EBL does not provide foreign creditors with sufficient protection.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.”
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover..”
