The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) Singapore Branch was delighted to receive a delegation from the Bangladesh International Arbitration Centre (BIAC) to attend the Introduction to International Arbitration course in Singapore on 5 - 6 November 2019. This two-day training was successfully organised and well attended by 16 delegates from the public and private sectors of Bangladesh. The course provided an understanding of the general principles of international (i.e. non-domestic) arbitration and its relationship to other dispute resolution processes, as well as an introduction to the legal framework of, and good practice and procedure in, international arbitration in their jurisdiction.
Led by Mr. Chou Sean Yu FCIArb (Director, CIArb Singapore), the teaching team included Ms. Camilla Godman FCIArb, Ms. Sapna Jhangiani FCIArb, and Ms. Amanda Lees FCIArb as well as three guest speakers, Mr. Chahat Chawla from SIAC, Ms. Chiara Accornero from WIPO and Mr. Akhil Chowdary from the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).
Besides being a learning platform, there were ample opportunities for delegates, speakers and guests to meet and network, which was a great takeaway from the event.
