Research Handbook on Foreign Direct Investment

Edited by Markus Krajewski and Rhea T. Hoffmann

Increasing international investment, the proliferation of international investment agreements, domestic legislation, and investor-State contracts have contributed to the development of a new field of international law that defines obligations between host states and foreign investors with investor-State dispute settlement. This involves not only vast sums, but also a panoply of rights, duties, and shifting objectives at the juncture of national and international law and policy. This engaging Research Handbook provides an authoritative account of these diverse investment law issues.

Chapter 12: Asia

Locknie Hsu


This chapter examines topical issues in investment law and agreements, reflecting a number of themes developed in other chapters, while providing an Asian context. Given the increasing number of treaties and national legislative and judicial actions in Asia which have an impact on international investment law, the region provides rich research material. Examples of regional developments include State actions taken to review, renegotiate or terminate investment treaties, and the growing number of investment disputes involving either an Asian State, an Asian investor, or both. Investment arbitration-related decisions are emerging in Asian courts and these also present important subject matter for analysis, both procedurally as well as substantively. Finally, significant investment dispute resolution reform actions, such as those proposed by the EU, can have important implications for Asian states with which the EU is negotiating trade and investment agreements.
