    Course Description

    This virtual training, presented by the IMF's Legal Department, is structured in six sessions of 90 minutes and will explore a selected number of topics that are relevant for the insolvency regime in China. The training will cover key legal aspects of the insolvency framework, including questions that are central to the application of the Enterprise Bankruptcy Law (EBL) of China, such as core issues in the liquidation and reorganization of enterprises, the supporting institutional system (including courts, judges, and insolvency administrators),; and will also introduce topics that are essential in the legislative reform agenda, such as cross-border insolvency, enterprise group insolvency, and household insolvency. The training also includes a session on the challenges experienced by insolvency systems worldwide because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Drawing from the IMF's experience in working with many of its 189 member countries, the training will approach all topics from a comparative perspective, building on international best practices and cross-country experience.
