About this Hybrid Event:

SIArb’s annual seminar, “Developments in Singapore Arbitration”, returns in February 2024 in a hybrid format. The speakers will analyse and share their observations about some of the key arbitration-related decisions issued by the Singapore courts in 2023.

In particular, the discussion will look at CZT v CZU [2023] SGHC (I) 11 and The Republic of India v Deutsche Telecom AG [2023] SGCA(I) 10, two cases that considered confidentiality in the context of international arbitration; and DBX v DBZ [2023] SGHC(I) 18, which clarifies the operation of the three-month time bar to set aside an award where a tribunal issues a correction on its own initiative.

The speakers will also examine the 2023 cases on setting aside and enforcement of awards, and identify the trends that may be discerned from these cases.
