The forum attracted about 400 participants from 18 countries and regions. It included four major topics for discussion.

Xiao Yongping, director of the Institute of International Law in Wuhan University and standing vice president of CSPIL, said the Hague Convention has greatly influenced regional arrangements, domestic legislation, and scholars' ideas.
