Hong Kong civil disputes to embrace apology

Hong Kong2017 | Agosto 22
The Hong Kong Legislative Council recently passed the Apology Bill with the aim of removing certain legal disincentives for parties to convey an apology in the context of civil disputes.

This often leads to adverse economic ramifications of arbitral awards for these countries.
