2024 COLLOQUIUM ON INTERNATIONAL LAW
Asia’s Contribution to ‘Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence’:
Past and Future

With an emphasis on inclusivity, mutual collaboration, respect for sovereignty, and peaceful resolution of disputes, the ‘Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence’ have become the general principles of international law and the basic norms of contemporary international relations. To commemorate the 70th Anniversary of its pronouncement, 2024 Colloquium on International Law sets out to reflect and deliberate on Asia’s contribution in the past and the future with three foci:

• Belt and Road Initiative
Guided by the principle of ‘Shared Consultation, Shared Contribution, and Shared Benefits’, experts will look into how it serves as a significant driving force for the development of China, developing countries as well as the world at large, aptly embodying the principle of equality and co-operation for mutual benefit.

• Partnership in Trade Relation
In order for cross-border commercial transactions to be conducted smoothly, businesses to forge partnerships, and enterprises to develop and prosper, experts will discuss how all of those rely on multilateral agreements established among States by upholding the principle of equality and cooperation for mutual benefit and thereby guaranteeing a transparent, equitable and predictable business environment.

• Mediation
In the face of unprecedented challenges in international world order, speakers will share their experience in the use of mediation as a non-adversarial, conciliatory means to address differences and disputes, epitomising the principle of peaceful coexistence in handling international relations and promoting peaceful dialogues.
