Where in Asia can Australian judgments be enforced?

Author: Asian Business Law Institute (November 2020)

Ensuring you don’t lose the fruits of your hard-fought litigation is important when that litigation is cross-border. In 2017–18, trade with Asia represented about two-thirds (A$526 billion) of Australia’s two-way trade in goods and services (A$799 billion). Twelve economies out of Australia’s top 15 trading partners are in Asia. But in which Asian countries can you enforce a Australian judgment should you need to? How portable are Australian judgments within Asia?

This concise handbook will tell you:
  • In which countries Australian judgments have been recognised and enforced (with examples);
  • in which countries Australian judgments are entitled to be recognised and enforced; and
  • in which countries Australian judgments cannot be recognised and enforced.
Countries considered:
  • Brunei
  • Cambodia
  • China
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Japan
  • Lao
  • Malaysia
  • Myanmar
  • the Philippines
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
