About this Webinar:

Conflicting headwinds have marked 2022. Most international economies have re-opened after 2 years of the COVID-19 pandemic, and business activities have crept back towards pre-pandemic levels. At the same time, business outlook has been muted by the war in Ukraine and rising inflationary pressures.

In the international arbitration space, 2022 saw a return to arbitration-related travel and in-person hearings, although virtual and hybrid hearings remain popular. The Singapore courts have also continued to see a significant number of arbitration-related applications, in particular for the setting aside of awards.

SIArb’s annual lecture, Developments in Singapore Arbitration, returns in 2023 in webinar format. Hear from speakers who will not only provide an overview of the decisions made by the Singapore courts in 2022, but will also discuss some of the common issues and trends that may impact the Singapore arbitration landscape.

Webinar Programme:

Webinar participants will be able to watch and listen to (via computer audio or telephone line) the video presentation and Q&A discussion on their screens, receive a PDF copy of the presentation slides, as well as participate in the Q&A discussion by sending in their questions to the moderator via text using the built-in Q&A function.
