Asia’s arbitration hub

The most senior executive of Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) was in New York to speak on the latest development of the city as a regional arbitration hub (Jun 5). In a HKETONY-hosted seminar “Doing Business with China: Why Arbitration Matters?” for US investors and legal professionals, Secretary-General Sarah Grimmer highlighted the advantages for corporations to seek cross-border dispute resolution in the city. With its highly cost-effective services and stellar record of global awards enforcement, Hong Kong is the ideal arbitration hub in Asia while arbitration has become the premier dispute resolution mechanism in the region. HKIAC handles over 100 disputes between Mainland Chinese and foreign parties every year, making up over 40% of total cases. Jinlin Nan, a partner at Zhong Lun, gave a presentation on the opportunities the Belt and Road Initiative would offer to US companies.
