Professor Wang Jiangyu quoted in Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao on China’s legislative plan on laws with extraterritorial effect


CCCL Director Professor Wang Jiangyu commented on the announcement by China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) to accelerate legislative work on enacting laws that can counterbalance foreign sanctions, extraterritorial jurisdiction and foreign inferences. In response to the reporter’s questions, he explained and clarified several legal issues concerning the hierarchy of legislative system in China and observed that the rationale behind such legislative plan is for the purpose of responding to potential sanctions which may be imposed by the Biden administration.
