If a person walks on the street and gets hit by a falling flowerpot, who should take responsibility? The owner or the real estate company?

If you voluntarily saved a man who fainted by giving him a CPR, but he in turn sues you because you accidentally hurt his ribs, will you lose the lawsuit just because you tried to be a good person?

All these issues can be solved by China's Civil Code.

Chinese lawmakers voted on Thursday to adopt the country's Civil Code at the third session of the 13th National People's Congress, the top legislature, and the Civil Code will take effect on Jan 1, 2021.

Covering all aspects of people's lives from property rights to personal rights, from marriage and family to inheritance, how will China's Civil Code affect people? Watch this video.
