Jie Huang, Lecturer, School of Law, Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade. Judgment recognition and enforcement (JRE) between US sister states, between EU member states, and between Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macao, are in the category of "inter-regional" JRE. This paper presentation will examine what lessons China may draw from the US and the EU. It first discusses the status quo of the interregional JRE in China. Then it explores how the interregional economic integration demands the establishment of a multilateral interregional JRE arrangement in China. Finally it points out the four most crucial challenges in developing this arrangement. It proposes solutions to each challenge by comparative studies between China, the US and the EU.
