23 September 2019


7 August 2019 will be a day etched in the memories of the Singapore legal community for years to come. The Singapore Mediation Convention progressed from a dream to a reality. 46 countries signed the Convention in Singapore on this historic day. Credit must go to all involved, particularly the Ministry of Law. I had the privilege of serving as a host to delegates and they were full of praise for Singapore.

Singapore now has a tripartite solution for international disputes. International Arbitration, International Mediation and International Litigation (through the SICC). End users have the benefit of choice and flexibility to utilise the most appropriate dispute resolution mechanism. Any “competition” between the tripartite offering can only be a good thing as standards and processes are constantly improved. Singapore has adopted a transnational approach for the various rules and processes, wherein best practices from both civil and common law traditions are reflected.

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.

SIDRA has engaged the Forensic Services department of PwC South East Asia Consulting to administer the Survey. If you would like to participate in the Survey, please click This email address is being protected from spambots.
