ABLI Launches the "Where in Asia" Series of Handbooks on Judgments Recognition and Enforcement

To better raise awareness of the Asian Principles for the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments (Asian Principles) produced under our Foreign Judgments Project, the Asian Business Law Institute has launched a new "Where in Asia" series of concise handbooks that address specific questions such as where in Asia can Singapore (Including SICC) judgments be enforced.


Each handbook, ranging from seven to 15 pages, is generally divided into the following segments:  
  • Countries in Asia where judgments of a certain jurisdiction have been recognised and enforced (with examples)
  • Countries in Asia where judgments of that jurisdiction are entitled to be recognised and enforced
  • Countries in Asia where judgments of that jurisdiction cannot be recognised and enforced

The Asian jurisdictions considered in this "Where in Asia" series include Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam, all of which are discussed in the Asian Principles. 
The Asian jurisdictions considered in this "Where in Asia" series include Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.

Each handbook is also priced extremely affordably to encourage readership and drive interest in the Asian Principles and the boarder issues of judgments recognition and enforcement.
