SIAC Congress 2014 is the inaugural edition of SIAC’s annual signature event, the SIAC Congress, held in Singapore on 6 June 2014. The theme of this year’s Congress is ‘Dispute Resolution Asia – Innovation and Change in an Age of Opportunity – A View from the Lion City’. Key industry stakeholders (including leading practitioners, arbitrators, academics, members of the judiciary and general counsel) will participate as speakers and share their views, make comparisons and explore the potential benefits of having a suite of dispute resolution service offerings in Singapore comprising international arbitration through SIAC, the new proposed Singapore International Commercial Court and the Singapore International Mediation Centre. In addition, SIAC, together with the NUS Centre for International Law (CIL) will conduct a panel on investment treaty arbitration to promote thought leadership from Singapore.

The video will have a duration of under 3 hours. There will be subtitles available in various languages including Bahasa Indonesia, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
