Innovation, revolution and alternative dispute resolution. These are the words that would perfectly sum up the latest event organised by the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC)
On the 5th of May 2018, the AIAC officially launched their highlight event of the year, the Asia ADR Week 2018. Held in the AIAC Centre at Bangunan Sulaiman, delegates from around the world converge for a 3-day event.
Datuk Professor Sundra Rajoo, Director of the AIAC delivered the opening speech.
He succinctly summed up what the AIAC wish to accomplish and what delegates can look forward to throughout the event.
Besides that, the guest of honour was none other than the 6th Secretary-General of the Asian-African Legal Consultative Organisation (AALCO)
H.E Professor Dr Kennedy Gastorn gave a riveting speech on Alternative Dispute Resolution in his keynote address. The speech was titled: “ADR in a Changing World: The Asian Experience”
Held in conjunction with the AIAC’s 40th Anniversary – the event aims to provide ‘an apt platform to promote Asia as a pivotal market for trade agreement’. The event flow was as such:
- “The Asian Experience” (5th May)
- “Discover The Difference” (6th May)
- CIPAA Conference: “Sharing Solutions” (7th May)
But that’s not all.
Delegates were also encouraged to mingle around and network, aside from listening and participating in an in-depth discussion regarding ADR in Asia.
Wonder what new events AIAC will have in the future.
