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 “arbitration pie”.Full interview can be found here:
