近日,最高人民法院为充分发挥人民法院审判职能作用,有效服务和保障“一带一路”建设的顺利实施,发布了《关于人民法院为“一带一路”建设提供司法服务和保障的若干意见》(法发〔2015〕9号)。其中明确提到,人民法院应依法准确适用国际条约和惯例,查明和适用外国法律,增强裁判的国际公信力。在发布上述意见的同时,最高院还通报了8起人民法院为“一带一路”建设提供司法服务和保障的典型案例。本文以其中德国蒂森克虏伯冶金产品有限责任公司(以下简称“克虏伯公司”)与中化国际(新加坡)有限公司(以下简称“中化公司”)国际货物买卖合同纠纷一案(〔2013〕民四终字第35号)为例,对“一带一路”建设中可能涉及的法律冲突与解决进行分析。
