    In this paper, the national Indian and Chinese statutes on arbitration are compared with the UNCITRAL Model Law.

Thus, looking at the features all-inclusiveness, information load, information spread, legislative style and transparency significant differences are found and related to the different com-municative purposes (overall model vs. specific national rules), the different legal traditions (common law vs. civil law) and the different political systems (westernised market economy vs. socialist market economy).
