Experts, law professors, and arbitrators representing 15 Arab and European countries are scheduled to participate in the ‘3rd International Arbitration Conference’ slated on March 20 in Doha.
The conference is being held in parallel with the 60th anniversary of the promulgation of the New York Convention of 1958, the 15th anniversary of Qatar’s adhesion to the convention in 2003, and the first anniversary of the issuance of the Qatari Arbitration Law No 2 of 2017.
Qatar Chamber’s Qatar International Centre for Conciliation and Arbitration (Qicca) is organising the conference titled ‘Arbitration between Qatari Law & International Conventions’ under the auspices of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani.
According to a statement from Qatar Chamber, Qicca board member Sheikh Thani bin Ali al-Thani said the conference shows that “Qatar is on the right path to enhance the country’s business environment.”
Sheikh Thani said the conference will discuss several topics to help develop applications in the field of international arbitration, which are tools that would help attract investment and the flow of capital to countries. The conference offers six sessions that would discuss topics on arbitration issues and recent developments that have contributed to the development of a number of key principles in arbitration in the world.
The first session will discuss the implications of the Qatar Arbitration Law on the business environment, while the second session will discuss the lessons learned from the application of the New York Convention.
The third session will address trends in the rules of global arbitration centres, while the fourth session will focus on the dispute settlement mechanism in major construction contracts in light of the huge infrastructure projects and the 2022 FIFA World Cup projects.
The fifth session will answer questions about maritime disputes between the interests of carriers and the interests of shippers by sea and the role of arbitration in resolving such disputes, while the last session will highlight the role of arbitration expertise and its importance under the country experience law.
