Global Arbitration Review – The Asia-Pacific Arbitration Review 2013
The Global Arbitration Review (GAR) has published a series of 2013 special reports designed to help general counsels, arbitrators and practitioners seize the opportunities of international arbitration. The Asia-Pacific Arbitration Review 2013 provides an update – written by the experts – on developments in key jurisdictions.
Chapter 3 of the report focuses on Malaysia. Written by Chong Yee Leong and Choi Fuh Mann from Kamilah & Chong and Rajah & Tann LLP, it discusses arbitration in Malaysia (as well as that of KLRCA’s role), the developments so far and the prospects for the future.
“…As will become apparent as the discussion proceeds, Malaysia has been rigorously undertaking steps to develop into the preferred arbitration nation and is now fast becoming one of the key arbitration hubs in the Asia-Pacific region. The progress is further enhanced by a supportive government and arbitration-friendly courts in Malaysia, which, coupled with the aggressive marketing of the KLRCA as the preferred arbitral institution by engaging companies in Malaysia and abroad to explain the advantages of utilising the KLRCA, will see the country soar to greater heights.”
