It thus creates a situation of "one country, two systems, three legal systems, four judicial regions" in China. Through studying the empirical cases of the mutual recognition and execution of civil and commercial judgments between the Mainland and Hong Kong and that between the Mainland and Macao, the authors conclude that: it is necessary to establish the mutual recognition and execution mechanisms of civil and commercial judgments between the Mainland, Hong Kong and Macao, as it helps to protect the fundamental rights of the residents. The existing mechanism needs to be improved. Three phases for the perfection are suggested: the first phase is the "arrangement" mode; the second phase is the "model law" mode; and the third phase is the "central legislation" mode.
