Editorial remarks

EDITOR: Jing Li

This Court finds that the Public of Korea is not a Contracting State of the United Nations Convention of the Contracts for International Sale of Goods (1980) (hereinafter, the "CISG"). Therefore, the CISG does not apply to the present dispute. Article 145(2) of the General Principles of the Civil Law of the People's Republic of China provides that "[i]f the parties to a contract involving foreign interests have not made a choice, the law of the country to which the contract is most closely connected shall be applied." The parties in this case failed to select the applicable law to the contract. Therefore, this Court shall determine the applicable law according to the doctrine of the closest connection. The price terms under the contract are CFR Shanghai. Additionally, the [Buyer] accepted the goods in Shanghai, the port of destination, i.e., the place of performance was in China. Consequently, this Court finds that the applicable law to the present dispute is Chinese law.
