Abstract This paper outlines and evaluates the current debate on the propriety and feasibility of enacting a national law in the People's Republic of China enunciating a body of general principles overarching various commercial legislations. By way of a critical and comparative appraisal of three most pertinent and promising pieces of materials in this regard - the Regulations of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone on Commercial Matters and two scholarly recommendation drafts - it advocates the enactment of such general principles and suggests the salient features and the essential structure of the future code.
