The Sino-Korean International Private Law seminar provides a good platform for mutual learning and the study and development of  international private law. Professor Huang Jin, vice-president of the Chinese Law Society, president of the Chinese International Private Law Society, president of the Chinese University of Political Science and Law, as well as president of the Korean International Private Law Society, and Professor Shi Guangxian, of the Law School of Seoul University, respectively, delivered speeches on behalf of Chinese and Korean International Private Law Societies. Huang Jin said that international law is now the common norm of conduct in all countries of the world, the universal discourse system of the international community, and the consensual value people globally. Over the past 40 years of reform and opening-up, China has not only been a learner, follower, adapter, and observer, but also practitioner and beneficiary of current international law, but also a defender, developer and contributor to current international law. It is the reason why China has been able to develop into the second largest economy in the world. The nation's comprehensive national strength, it's economic, scientific and technological undertakings, it's national defense and it’s ability to enter the forefront of the world, do not only stem from reform and opening up, while taking the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics, but are also rooted in learning, mastering and applying, practicing and further developing international law. Shi Guangxian said that resolving conflicts through international civil and commercial law, and pursuing international consensus in judgments of international private law must guide the concept of the international community in the 21st century. All countries in the world should respect and trust foreign cultures and laws. Holding this symposium can enhance mutual understanding and communication, deepen mutual trust and friendship, and help to deliver an Asian voice in the field of private international law. This is a very good opportunity.

Wang Xiaoli, director of the Guangzhou Arbitration Commission of China, said that in the field of international private law, the settlement of international commercial disputes is an important and practical issue, and the confidentiality of arbitration, autonomy of the will and the final ruling of arbitration undoubtedly play an important role in the settlement of international commercial disputes. As early as 2013, the Chinese Society of International Private Law and the Korean Society of International Private Law signed the Joint Statement on the Settlement of Economic and Trade Disputes between the two countries by Arbitration. After five years, this year's seminar coincides with the decision of the Standing Committee of the Guangzhou Municipal People's Congress on promoting the development of arbitration in Guangzhou. The Guangzhou Arbitration Commission will take this opportunity to strengthen cooperation with the international private law and arbitration community in Korea to provide better quality of legal services for the "one belt and one road" initiative.
