The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), which came into force on 1 January 2022, is the largest regional FTA in the world, and China is one of its member states. RCEP will have an important impact on China’s overseas investment and the development of international investment treaties. The newly revised Rules and Regulations of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) came into force on 1 July 2022, which will have a far-reaching influence on the rules and practice of international investment arbitration.
