:facebook: List of Laws

In a word, no.

Exception: agreements (treaties, MOU’s, covenants, what have you) with foreign governments or de facto government representatives, when those agreements mention that the translations are equally valid.

Then there are the laws and regulations that haven’t been translated and therefore can only be found by searching in Chinese.

3 posts were merged into an existing topic: Contracts must be translated

I didn’t know that I cannot edit posts after 2 days.

NIA is a part of MOI, but better to be listed separately.
