The Pudong People's Court has handled 21,538 cases involving companies and government agencies in the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone since it was founded in November 2013, according to newly released statistics.
They include 15,526 civil and commercial cases, 602 criminal cases, five administrative cases, and 5,405 law enforcement cases. The court settled 19,447 of the 21,538 cases, according to a white paper issued by the Court's judges at a recent press conference.
The volume of cases involving parties in the free trade zone has increased rapidly in the past three years as the zone has developed and improved its policies and legal environment. The Court has also seen a change in the nature of its caseload.
The judges cited ten influential cases - four business lawsuits, three copyright infringement lawsuits, a labor dispute case, an administrative lawsuit, and a criminal case - and explained how they solved these difficult cases.
