13. Governing Law.
This Contract shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the
laws of England without regard to its procedural rules which would lead to the
adoption of laws of other countries due to conflicts of laws.
14. Submission to Jurisdiction.
(a) Borrower hereby irrevocably consents that any legal action or
proceeding against it or any of its assets with respect to any of the
obligations arising under or relating to this Contract may be brought in any
English court, as Lender may elect, and by execution and delivery of this

such action or proceeding, for itself and in respect of its property, generally
and unconditionally, the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts.
Borrower hereby irrevocably designates, appoints and empowers AES Electric in
England (address: Burleigh House, 17-19 Worple Way, Richard TW10 6AG, U.K.), as
its agent to receive for and on its behalf service of process in England in any
legal action or proceeding with respect to this Contract, the Note or any other
document delivered in connection herewith or therewith. The foregoing, however,
shall not limit the rights of Lender to serve process in any other manner
permitted by law or to bring any legal action or proceeding or to obtain
execution of judgment in any jurisdiction, including without limitation the
People's Republic of China.
(b) Borrower hereby waives any right it may have under the laws of any
jurisdiction to commence by publication any legal action or proceeding with
respect to this Contract, the Note or any other document delivered in connection
herewith or therewith.
(c) Borrower hereby irrevocably waives any objection which it may now or
hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any suit, action or proceeding
arising out of or relating to this Contract, the Note or any other document
delivered in connection herewith or therewith in England and hereby further
irrevocably waives any claim that England is not a convenient forum for any such
suit, action or proceeding.
(a) Notwithstanding Section 14, Lender may, in its sole discretion, choose
to submit any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Contract for
binding arbitration in Stockholm, Sweden under the auspices of the International
Chamber of Commerce in accordance with the Rules of Conciliation and Arbitration
of the International Chamber of Commerce as in effect on the date of this
Contract (except to the extent this Section 15 specifies different procedures in
which event such procedures will govern the arbitration to the extent so
specified). Lender may choose arbitration with respect to any dispute at any
time either before or after any filing of any claim, action or proceeding with
any court by either party, provided, however, that once Lender
makes such a choice, the relevant dispute will be settled finally and
exclusively by arbitration irrespective of (i) whether any claim, action or
proceeding has already been commenced in any court, (ii) the magnitude of such
dispute or (iii) whether such dispute would otherwise be considered justiciable
or ripe for resolution by a court or arbitral tribunal. In the event that a
claim, action or proceeding has already been commenced in a court when Lender
chooses to submit the relevant dispute for arbitration, both parties hereto will
immediately discontinue and withdraw the claim, action or proceeding from the
court so that the dispute may be handled exclusively by arbitration. Once a
dispute is submitted by Lender to arbitration, Borrower shall not have any right
to file any claim, action or proceeding in any court in respect of such dispute
or any matter relating to such dispute so that the dispute may be handled
exclusively by arbitration. Any action by Lender to submit any dispute for
arbitration shall not prevent Lender from bringing any claim, action or
proceeding in any court with respect to any other dispute. Borrower shall not
have any right to submit any dispute to arbitration. Any settlement and award
rendered through arbitration proceeding will be final and binding upon the
parties hereto if the decision is in writing and contains a reasoned analysis
explaining the arbitrators' reasons for rendering the award. This Contract and
the rights and obligations of the parties hereto will remain in full force and
effect pending the award in such arbitration proceeding, which award will
determine whether and when termination of this Contract shall become effective.
(b) The arbitration will be conducted in English and Chinese.
(c) There will be three arbitrators. Each party will select one arbitrator
within 30 days after Lender elects to commence arbitration. Such arbitrators
will be freely selected, and the parties hereto will not be limited in their
selection to any prescribed list. Within 30 days after the selection of the
latter of the two arbitrators selected by the parties, the two arbitrators shall
select the third arbitrator; if the two arbitrators do not select the third
within such 30 day period, the arbitrating body will select the third
arbitrator. If a party does not appoint an arbitrator who has consented to
participate within 30 days after the selection of the first arbitrator, the
relevant appointment will be made by the arbitrating body. The costs of the
arbitration will be borne by the parties hereto as determined by the arbitration
tribunal taking into account the relative merits of the positions of the
(d) The parties hereto agree that the arbitral award may be enforced
against the parties or their assets wherever they may be found and that a
judgment upon the arbitral award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction
thereof. Accordingly, the parties hereto irrevocably agree that any action to
enforce such judgment may be instituted wherever appropriate and each party
hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection
which it may have now or hereafter to the laying of the venue or the
jurisdiction or the convenience of the forum of any such action and irrevocably
submits generally and unconditionally to the jurisdiction of any such court in
any such action.
16. Banking Day Adjustment.
If the date on which a payment is due is not a Banking Day, such date shall
be changed to the next succeeding Banking Day (or to the first preceding Banking
Day if the next succeeding Banking Day is in another calendar month).
Borrower shall provide Lender with such information concerning the
condition and operation of Borrower, financial or otherwise, as Lender may from
time to time request.
18. Waiver; Cumulative Rights.
The failure or delay of Lender to require performance by Borrower of any
provisions of this Contract shall not affect its right to require performance of
such provision unless and until such performance has been waived in writing by
Lender. Each and every right granted to Lender hereunder or under any other
document delivered in connection herewith, or allowed to it at law or in equity,
shall be cumulative and may be exercised in part or in whole from time to time.
This Contract shall be binding upon and shall be enforceable by Borrower
and Lender and their respective successors and assigns, except that Borrower
shall have no right to assign or transfer its rights or obligations hereunder.
Nothing herein contained shall limit the right of set-off, lender's lien or
counterclaim which may be available to Lender under applicable law.
If any or more of the provisions contained in this Contract, the Note or
any other document delivered in connection herewith shall be invalid, illegal or
unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law, the validity, legality
and enforceability of the remaining provisions contained herein or therein shall
not in any way be affected or impaired.
This Contract may be signed in any number of counterparts. Any single
counterpart or a set of counterparts signed, in either case, by both parties
hereto shall constitute a full and original contract for all purposes.
This Contract shall be written and executed in both Chinese and English
versions, each of which shall have equal force and effect.
Unless otherwise stated, all references made in this Contract to 'Sections'
and 'Exhibits' shall refer, respectively, to Sections of, and Exhibits to, this
Contract. References herein to this Contract include the Exhibits hereto.
This Contract shall become effective upon the signing hereof and upon the
