Following the development of the "Belt and Road” and the National 13th Five-year Plan, cross-border trade and cooperation in other areas are expected to increase. To cater for the increasing demand for dispute resolution services by these enterprises, the Mainland - Hong Kong Joint Mediation Center (MHJMC) was collaboratively set up by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) / China Chamber of International Commerce (CCOIC) Mediation Center and the Hong Kong Mediation Centre with vigorous support from the Department of Justice of Hong Kong. Being the first joint mediation center set up by major mediation institutions in Hong Kong and Mainland, MHJMC provides a new platform for cooperation in mediation in two places.

The dual advantages under the principles of "One country” and "Two systems” have enabled Hong Kong to act as a neutral venue for cross-border dispute resolution services for local, Mainland and international enterprises, thus enhancing the status of Hong Kong as the dispute resolution center of the Asia Pacific region. Moreover, to further enhance the development of mediation in the Mainland, MHJMC sets up professional standards for mediators and mediation advocates, establishes professional mediation accreditation mechanism in China and assists in refining mediation training in China, enhancing professional standards of mediation in the Mainland.
