The Maritime Silk Road: Exploring Dispute Resolution Opportunities
Today carriage by sea has firmly established itself as the main mode of transport in international trade. The growing volume of goods being transported by sea has inevitably led to the increase in commercial disputes, with maritime arbitration having emerged as the preferred dispute settlement mechanism. Currently, maritime arbitration strives to achieve a judicious balance between ensuring strict compliance with applicable mandatory laws and rules and preserving autonomy among the contracting parties.
Malaysia and China have strong maritime traditions, and consequentially, both continue to play a strategic role in the development of international carriage of goods by sea and maritime arbitration. The AIAC in cooperation with the China Maritime Arbitration Commission (CMAC), is pleased to present this joint seminar highlighting the unique features of maritime dispute resolution mechanisms from Malaysia and China’s perspectives. This event is free of charge, but as only limited number of seats are available, please register at email@example.com.
