The Ordinance will come into effect on 1 August 2008. Order 71A of the Rules of the High Court will also be amended to give effect to the Ordinance. As a result, we now have a mechanism for reciprocal enforcement of judgments between the Mainland and Hong Kong in relation to civil or commercial matters.
