The Asia-Pacific Arbitration Review 2022 contains insight and thought leadership inspired by recent events, from 35 pre-eminent practitioners. This edition covers Australia, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Vietnam and has overviews on construction and infrastructure disputes in the region (including the effect of covid-19), the state of ISDS and what to expect there, and trends in commercial arbitration, as well as contributions by four of the more dynamic local arbitral providers.
Within this review, you will learn:
• force majeure is not necessarily the only option for project participants affected by covid-19, especially if the FIDIC suite is in the picture; • Korea’s diaspora is known as its Hansang and more ‘international’ arbitrators are now accepting KCAB appointments (the number of KCAB ‘first-timers’ is up by 23 per cent); • it has become far easier for foreign counsel and arbitrators to conduct cases in Thailand; • there have been some strongly pro-arbitration decisions from the Philippines and Vietnam of late; • Sri Lanka’s courts also seem to have turned a corner on avoiding excessive interference; and • improvements in the arbitral environment in Vietnam are part of a concerted effort that began in 2015.
