This is an online event organised by CIArb’s Egypt’s branch, taking place on 15 September 2020, 6.pm Cairo time. Please check your local time zone. The event is titled ‘Is Egypt a Friendly or Unfriendly Country to Arbitration?’
Egypt has recently attracted investors to start mega projects in the country. Claims and disputes are very common on mega projects; accordingly, the need for an arbitration friendly judicial system was needed. The government enacted the Egyptian Arbitration Law (EAL) 27 of 1994 and its amendments, and ratified the 1958 New York Convention. Despite the above, there are challenges in relation to arbitration agreement, arbitration procedures, and enforcement in Egypt, when Egypt is the seat of arbitration, and where (EAL) is the governing law. In this Webinar the challenges are analysed depicting problems that need enhancements by jurists and scholars.
The live webinar will be delivered in English.
Event speaker: Dr. Engy Serag MCIArb
