ONLINE TRAINING WORKSHOP ON “SHIPPING LAW โ€“ ITS PRACTICAL APPLICATION IN VIETNAM”

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed direct impacts on the global economy and brought along a great deal of consequences. Vietnamese businesses in general and companies operating in the maritime sector in particular are not excluded from this spiral. In a short period of time, a lot of disputes have arisen regarding delay in delivery, delay in payments for goods and rental fees, demurrage, detention, cargo claims, collision, etc. Having to face such situation, businesses suffer confusion trying to find the most effective solutions for their disputes. Understanding the worries of businesses about the impacts of the pandemic, we are pleased to offer completely free webinars (online seminars) to provide basic knowledge on maritime law and maritime operations in Vietnam. For the first time in Vietnam, businesses will have the opportunity to speak directly with leading maritime lawyers in the world and the region from world-renowned law firms which are always in the top rank by Legal 500 or Chambers & Partners. Furthermore, attendees can also ask the speakers about specific problems which they are facing for useful solutions that are relevant to the merit of each case. In addition, the webinars are also supported by the Vietnam International Arbitration Center (VIAC), the leading international arbitration center in Vietnam, which has resolved many maritime disputes in the nation and Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (SCMA), a maritime arbitration center. We believe that this is an opportunity for businesses to grasp the basics of the maritime sector as well as useful solutions to the disputes that they are facing in order to navigate through their difficulties during and after the pandemic..

Over the course of the past 40 years, arbitration, as an international dispute resolution mechanism, has gained significant global traction. Certain jurisdictions, such as London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Geneva, and New York, are considered arbitration powerhouses, not only for being home to preeminent arbitration firms and boutiques, but also due to the strength of the lex arbitri, and the relevant supporting framework, in promoting these jurisdictions as preferred seats of arbitration.Nevertheless, the role of the UNCITRAL Model Law in harmonising the global arbitration framework, as well as the proactiveness of individual arbitral institutions and the support of the judiciary, has enabled lesser-known jurisdictions, including Vietnam to reposition themselves as emerging centres ready to have a piece of the proverbial โ€œarbitration pieโ€.Full interview can be found here:
