In a recent significant decision, the Hon. Mimmie Chan J. sitting in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance in 廣東順德展煒商貿有限公司 v Sun Fung Timber Company Limited [2021] HKCFI 3823 has set aside an earlier ex parte court order granting leave to enforce an arbitral award made in the Zhanjiang Arbitration Commission in Mainland China under section 95 of the Arbitration Ordinance (Cap. 609) (“AO”) on the following grounds:

  1. The arbitration agreement was not valid under Hong Kong law
  2. The respondent had not been given proper notice of the arbitration in Zhanjiang, Mainland China
  3. The enforcement of the arbitral award would be contrary to the public policy of Hong Kong

  1. 仲裁协议于香港法下无效
  2. 被申请人并未获得有关中国内地湛江仲裁的恰当通知
  3. 强制执行该内地仲裁裁决将违反香港的公共政策
