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.
