On 2 April 2019, the Supreme People's Court of the People's Republic of China ("SPC", "PRC") and the Secretary for Justice of the Hong Kong SAR signed an "Arrangement Concerning Mutual Assistance in Court-ordered Interim Measures in Aid of Arbitration Proceedings" ("Arrangement").

When effective, the Arrangement will allow parties to seek interim Court assistance in Mainland PRC in aid of Hong Kong arbitration, and vice versa. It applies only to institutional arbitration in Mainland PRC and to institutional arbitration in listed Hong Kong arbitral institutions. The list is yet to be released, but is expected to include CIETAC (Hong Kong), ICC (Hong Kong), and HKIAC.
