This chapter will concentrate on the issues of applicable law and jurisdiction ((i) and (ii) above) and a provisional assessment will be made of the extent to which such rules have led to increased recognition of cross-border trusts in the Asia-Pacific region. In wholly domestic cases differences between national laws on trusts, torts or contracts are normally only a matter of comparative curiosity but if a transaction crosses national boundaries, then the differing legal conceptions can come into conflict.
