Asian trading partners have become more and more important in the globalized economy. However, many western companies are still unfamiliar with the specificities of the Asia and especially Chinese markets. The newly offered specialization course is designed to give par-ticipants the understanding of the regulatory and legal characteristics of Asia’s key markets and thus better assess opportunities and risks.

The first part of the specialization course focuses on the basic questions of cross-border is-sues when dealing with Asia. Besides economic and legal challenges, issues relating to the protection of investments and cross-border finance as well as the importance of free trade agreements are discussed. Furthermore, the “One Belt One Road initiative” and possible investment and trading structures will be examined.

The course also deals with country-specific legal aspects of trade and investment. The focus will be on the following countries: China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam.
