Cross-border trade and investment activities invariably produce disputes. Given the geographical, legal and cultural diversity of BRI countries, it would not be surprising for such disputes to emerge/increase over time as economic transactions increase. This seminar will examine dispute avoidance strategies, and dispute resolution options such as arbitration and mediation, particularly in the context of BRI cross-border, investment-related disputes. The relevance of the Singapore Convention on Mediation - which is expected to be signed in August 2019 - to the BRI, will form part of this discussion. The new Singapore Infrastructure Dispute Management Protocol will also be covered briefly in this discussion. (The Protocol will be covered in greater detail in the next seminar on BRI and Infrastructure.)
