Seminar on dispute resolution strategies for enterprises in the Asia-pacific region: International arbitration and alternative dispute resolutions

Dec 18, 2023

As per the Regional Economic Outlook, Asia and Pacific report published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in October 2023, the Asia-Pacific region maintains its economic dynamism despite the ongoing challenges anticipated in the global economy in the near future. Furthermore, numerous Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) have been established and put into effect by regional countries, contributing to the institutionalization of the region and facilitating trade and investments among contracting parties. Concurrently, Asia-Pacific's vibrant economy has also attracted considerable interest from major economies, firmly solidifying its role as an important force driving global economic growth. Nonetheless, being a potential and attractive investment region, Asia-Pacific has experienced a rising volume of transactions, marked by an increase both in value and scale of transactions, as well as potential for legal risks and disputes. Accordingly, there is an urgent need for the development and proficient implementation of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms alongside conventional methods to address disputes arising from international transactions.
