affairs committee of the Law Society of Hong Kong, said the appointment of Hong Kong and M
acao-based arbitrators to Nansha would be important in allowing Hong Kong and Macao residents to
directly participate in the social and economic development of the Chinese mainland.
“The introduction of Hong Kong-and Macao-based legal workers will help build a more open market and business system
based on international practices,” Wong was quoted as saying by Guangzhou Daily.
According to Wong, the court of arbitration for labor and personnel disputes of Nansha, which was set up in May 2
017, had already conducted exchanges with its Hong Kong counterparts.
“Through exchanges with its Hong Kong counterparts in the arbitration process, Nan
sha is expected to build a sound and efficient environment in labor ar
bitration, which will be very helpful to the development of the Nansha Free Trade Zone,” Wong said.
