In the Chinese mainland, the slowed economy has profoundly influenced banking and financing investments and the resolution of relevant disputes. On one hand, the speed of economic development decelerated from near 10 percent to 7 percent and the structure of the economy continues to undergo major government reforms. Accordingly, the driving factors of economic development were turning from resources, materials and investments to efficiency, green initiatives and innovation. On the other hand, through either trillions in stimulus packages, suspension of initial public offering (IPO) projects or other macro-control mechanisms, the government still plays a critical role in this new normal.
Considering these and other factors, banking and financing disputes reveal four fresh trends: complexity, expansion, quantification and crowded disputes.
