Since 1986, from its Beijing office, the Sino-German Legal Cooperation Programme (and its predecessor programmes) has been supporting the legal reforms of the People’s Republic of China on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. The primary aim consists in improving cooperation and the mutual understanding of law between Germany and China on selected topics in relation to the state, the economy, and society. Not only the Chinese people, but also German and other international investors have profited from the growing legal certainty this has helped to achieve. The programme is part of the Sino-German Rule of Law Dialogue, which it supports with a broad range of activities.
