  • 12 Mar 2021
  • 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Join Fangda PartnersASAFO & CO. and Delos for an interactive roundtable on “The Often Overlooked Value of African Seats for African-Chinese Disputes”!

The critics lament the perceived flaws of the African  #arbitration infrastructure, the inexperienced judiciary, and the low #enforcement rate, amongst other disadvantages. The proponents suggest that, with the respondents’ assets located predominantly in #Africa, and with the contested projects located in Africa as well – selecting an African seat would make enforcement more straightforward and the conduct of the arbitration more predictable.

A lively discussion between both groups will feature Tunde Fagbohunlu SAN, Julia (Zhang) Le RouxMichael Tam and Peter Po Kwong Yuen. It will be moderated by Andrew Skudder and Thomas Granier.
