We are already at the midway point of 2019. SIArb has had an exciting year thus far and there is still more to come.
SIArb conducted its first ever joint arbitration training program in Tokyo with the Japan Commercial Arbitration Association (“JCAA”). Chan Leng Sun SC and I were privileged to work with Furuta Yoshimasa, Yutaro Kawabata as co-trainers. The program was well received and we look forward to collaborating more with the JCAA in the future. We will continue to look for opportunities to export the Singapore brand of arbitration. We have in the past been part of a World Bank funded training program in Cambodia, a training program for a Russian delegation in Singapore, and a training program in Qatar.
The “Singapore” brand for dispute resolution will receive a major boost on 7 August 2019 when it will be amongst the first signatories of the United Nation’s “Singapore Convention on Mediation”.

International Dispute Resolution Survey
The Singapore International Dispute Resolution Academy (SIDRA) has launched the International Dispute Resolution Survey to help corporations make strategic decisions on dispute resolution options, and to inform policy makers, dispute resolution institutions, and legal service providers on the dispute resolution needs of corporations.
Conducted by SIDRA and commissioned by the Singapore Ministry of Law, the Survey seeks to put together a comprehensive and robust understanding of how corporations resolve their cross-border commercial disputes and the reasons for their choices.
The Survey is focused on users of international dispute resolution mechanisms, primarily corporations that operate internationally in cross-border contexts. For this reason, the profile of users selected is exclusively limited to top C- Suite Executives, and lawyers involved in international dispute resolution. The Survey is the first of its kind in terms of scope and methodology.
SIDRA looks forward to your participation in this survey if you have been involved in international dispute resolution in the last 3 years.
The Singapore Institute of Arbitrators is an independent professional body established in 1981. We are a truly neutral professional body with no link or affiliation to any particular industry but bonded together with a common interest in arbitration & other alternative dispute resolution procedures. Presently, we have almost 900 members geographically represented throughout the world, many are practising professionals from a wide spectrum of diversified backgrounds who are also directly and indirectly involved in the dispute resolution procedures as Arbitrators, Mediators, Expert Witnesses and Consultants. Our main focus is in the aspect of professional training & development. Besides being a centre for promoting knowledge of arbitration & other ADRs, we also act as an appointing authority for the appointment of arbitrators upon requests. We work closely with the Singapore International Arbitration Centre. READ MORE
