What is the importance of the shipping industry to international commerce? What does China’s shipping industry look like? What are the major International Maritime Conventions that dominate maritime legislation? What International Maritime Conventions has China adopted? How has Chinese maritime legislation developed?

These questions are particularly significant, especially after China’s entry into the World Trade Organization.
