1st International ADR Conference in Bangkok

This annual flagship conference jointly organised by the UNCITRAL Regional Centre for Asia and the Pacific and Thailand Arbitration Centre is designed to attract legal practitioners, judges, in-house counsel, policymakers, academics and business persons for a comprehensive discussion on promoting the use of arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

The Conference in May focuses on new opportunities that result from legal convergence in alternative dispute resolution, and considers how legal unification and harmonisation are essential in promoting the use of ADR and the enforcement of awards and agreements. The Conference will have a focus on the Greater Mekong Subregion which lends itself to fostering internal trade and linkages outward to the wider economic initiatives of the Belt and Road and development of Thailand's Eastern Economic Corridor.

We are proud to announce our Mr Robert Pé will be speaking in Session 1 "Convergence of arbitral regimes: leveraging opportunities from a harmonised legal framework for arbitration" on 17 May 2018.

The conference will be held from 17 to 18 May 2018. Details on the event can be found here.
