Studies in the Contract Laws of Asia provides an authoritative account of the contract law regimes of selected Asian jurisdictions, including the major centres of commerce where limited critical commentaries have been published in the English language. Each volume in the series aims to offer an insider's perspective into specific areas of contract law - remedies, formation, parties, contents, vitiating factors, change of circumstances, illegality, and public policy - and explores how these diverse jurisdictions address common problems encountered in contractual disputes. A concluding chapter draws out the convergences and divergences, and other themes. All the Asian jurisdictions examined have inherited or adopted the common law or civil law models of European legal systems. Scholars of legal transplant will find a mine of information on how received law has developed after the initial adaptation and transplant process, including the mechanisms of and influences affecting these developments. At the same time, many points of convergence emerge. These provide good starting points for regional harmonization projects. Volume II of this series deals with contract formation and contracts for the benefit of third parties in the laws of China, India, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Myanmar. Typically, each jurisdiction is covered in two chapters; the first deals with contract formation, while the second deals with contracts for the benefit of third parties.

This book provides a comprehensive commentary and guidance to readers on the current edition (1999 Edition) of General Conditions of Contract for Civil Engineering Works (the "General Conditions"), which the Hong Kong Government uses for all its civil engineering contracts. The book describes 46 out of 90 clauses in the General Conditions and their practical application, with explanations in plain and simple language under such headings as Commentary, Analysis and Application. The listing of equivalent clauses of the more user-friendly English ICE Conditions and the international FIDIC Conditions together enables the readers to understand the meaning of the General Conditions from a different context. For those readers who find it easier to read in Chinese, the translation will help them to compare with and understand the original English text. The book is therefore useful to students, consulting engineers, surveyors and lawyers who want to understand more about the Hong Kong construction practice.
