China’s Chief Justice Gets Blockchain Briefing in Trip to Guiyang – CoinDesk

Zhou Qiang, China’s chief justice, received a briefing on blockchain technology last week during an inspection of the city of Guiyang in southwestern China.

According to domestic media reports, Qiang spoke to local court representatives on projects related to big data and blockchain, a notable development given that he is leading a drive to digitize China’s court system and reduce difficulties inherent in the enforcement of court decisions.

Among the topics reportedly discussed was a national credit system and asset registry, and how the lack of such a system can create issues when a plaintiff asks a court to enforce its decision in civil lawsuits.

Zhou, who is also president of the Supreme People’s Court, reportedly commented:

“Under the leadership of the party, we should beef up the use of information technology, and constantly improve the workflow of the national court system to overcome the difficulties in the enforcement of court decisions.”
