This book series had its origin in a workshop that was held by the International Academy of the Belt and Road in Hong Kong，where some of its authors were present. The consensus of the workshop was that mutual understanding among the B&R countries over their legal traditions, constitutional and governance frameworks, laws on trade transactions and other immediately relevant areas such as financial regulation，employment law and environmental law was crucially important for implementing the B&R Initiative. It is only through a proper understanding of commonalities and differences between these nations that we could develop a meaningful framework for carrying out the related trade, investment and other activities. The authors were provided with terms of reference for the chapter construction. Each country study would begin with an overview of its legal system relating to cross-border commercial transactions. The substantive parts of each chapter deal with customs systems, foreign trade law, law on foreign direct investments，monetary and banking law , laws relating to construction and infrastructure, labor management and treatment，environment and dispute resolution- both judicial and non-judicial( ADR).It is also part of the terms of reference that the authors should focus not only on the black letters of the laws but also on how these laws in fact operate in the marketplace. The authors were given a fair amount of leeway in examining each of these aspects in order that they could highlight those areas where their own nations would have a particular interest. The result is a happy blend of not only different writing styles but also different aspects of law in action.
