Online Event Discussing «Innovation in China. Which Impact on the World and our Businesses?».

The second Webinar organized by Weblaw and the Chair of Innovation Law of the University of Neuchâtel in the series «Droit de l’innovation / innovation law» focuses on China, which has become one of the key players in innovation and, as such, a world leader. More than ever, developments in China have an influence on the local, but globalized businesses of our clients.

The presentations will focus on three essential themes in which China plays a central and influential role:

  • blockchains and cryptocurrencies;
  • e-commerce;
  • new payment models and fight against financial fraud.

In collaboration with leading Swiss law firms in the field.

New Payment Models from China and Fight against Financial Fraud

«Asia embracing digital banking faster than anywhere else.» «China to overtake the U.S. for digital payments by 2020.» «Mobile payments such as Alipay to overtake credit cards by 2019.»

Unsurprisingly, financial fraud related to Greater China is growing at the pace of innovation: «Former Macau gangland boss enters into multimillion-dollar casino cryptocurrency deal.» «Hong Kong’s bitcoin businesses suffer after local bank accounts frozen.» «China’s bitcoin miners, wary of tighter government scrutiny, make plans to move overseas.» These are only the very last days' news. And yet, there is no criminal assistance treaty between Switzerland and China, nor with Macau. The treaty with Hong Kong dates back to 1999 (Alipay started in 2004, Bitcoin in 2009 and WeChat in 2011). Are we ready?
