We Talk: Governance in China through the eyes of a 'foreign mediator'



Tens of thousands of people from all over the world travel to Yiwu City in east China's Zhejiang Province every year to pursue their dreams. People of different nationalities, languages, beliefs, and cultures gather there. They don't just work and live in Yiwu but are also part of the city's social fabric. The People's Mediation Committee for Foreign-related Disputes in Yiwu City is a good example. It is the first county-level people's mediation committee for foreign-related disputes in China. Sushil Kumar Agrawal, a "foreign mediator" who has worked with the mediation committee for eight years, showed CGTN how the system of foreigners participating in the mediation of disputes works. He shared his personal experience of the system, noting that "mediation is all about win-win, how to make people come to a common point to renegotiate – this is the art of mediation." He also gave his insights into the characteristics of Chinese governance.
