List G Barristers members Martin Scott SC and Michael Whitten recently joined a delegation of Victorian Bar members on a visit to Guangzhou and Shenzen in Guangdong Province, China.

The delegation was warmly received by members of the Guangdong and Shenzen Lawyers Associations, CIETAC (China's largest arbitration institution), the Shenzen International Arbitration Court and influential local education institutions responsible for mandatory legal training of public officials. The delegation was also invited to meet privately with firms representing Chinese interests involved in cross-border commerce, in particular with Australia.

The delegation has been invited to return later in 2013 to engage in further discussions on the development of closer contact between lawyers in China and Australia directly.
