This Law is another important law for settling economic disputes which meets the needs of a socialist market economy and is in line with international practice. Arbitration institutions are independent from administrative organs and are not subject to administrative organs in accordance with the Arbitration Law.

Implementing the preceding provisions has a tight schedule， involves many complicated issues， requires some research through conducting experiments， and needs to be unified and standardized on the basis of experience from the experiment. In order to insure the smooth implementation of this work， the leaders of the State Council have agreed on the following notices：
