Edward Lehman Guest on China Central Television's Dialogue Program
Beijing, China – October 22, 2007 – Edward Lehman, managing partner of the firm Lehman, Lee & Xu was a featured guest on Friday’s episode of Dialogue, a show which discusses some of China's hottest topics. Professor He Jiaohong of Renimin University, Gao Zhikai of China National Association of International Studies and host Yang Rui discussed the topic of rule of law and rule by law related to the Communist Party of China, which was meeting in Beijing during the 17th National Congress.
Of China’s overall development towards the rule of law, Edward Lehman stated that the “situation is like turning a ship around. It takes a bit of time”. However, he was impressed with Hu Jintao's opening speech at the National Congress, stating that it is “tremendous that the leaders are saying from the top down, respect the rule of law”. However, though all applauded the efforts, there seemed to be common concern about the ability to enforce laws, making this the challenge for China’s legislators.
