On 4 September 2020, a global project “Does a Right to a Physical Hearing Exist in International Arbitration?” was launched by the ICCA attracting around 85 New York Convention contracting States, including Vietnam. Among the first four national reports chosen by the organizers to be published was Vietnam report attributed to Mr Hew Dundas, Ms Nguyen Thi Thu Trang (Special Arbitration Counsel), and Ms Nguyen Thi Mai Anh (Associate). Three other national reports are: Australia, Italia, and the United States.
With profound understanding and years of extensive experience, our people have created one of the “models for posting on the ICCA website”, taking one step further to get Vietnam to “the very top of the Premier League.” This recognition has put us “at the highest level in this aspect of legal activity” and demonstrated “that we are at least the equal of jurisdictions with far longer traditions of international arbitration,” said our beloved Mr. Dundas. The report comprises a series of in-depth legal questions and answers concerning the disputing parties’ right to a physical hearing under the current statutes on arbitration.
