As the first keynote speaker, Dr Helena Chen FCIArb (Convenor of the Taiwan Chapter) gave an introduction to the ICC’s 2021 Arbitration Rules. She highlighted several key changes in the new rules, including measures to improve complex arbitration proceedings and to facilitate the efficiency and transparency of arbitration proceedings.
