In our fast-paced, globalized world the demand for a diverse range of robust dispute
resolution frameworks has never been more urgent. Mediation, arbitration, and litigation
guarantee transnational economic and trade activities and maintain a healthy international
commercial order. To this end, the Singapore Convention now provides a new basis for cross-border enforcement of mediation agreements. Alongside the Convention on the Recognition
and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, the Convention on Choice of Court Agreements,
the Singapore Convention marks the formation of an international dispute resolution
enforcement framework, including mediation, arbitration, and judgments. Anyone involved in
alternative dispute resolution will have seen this field reinvigorate the Chinese business.
The Chengdu Lawyers Association has invited the Swiss Chinese Law Association (SCLA) and
the Geneva International Dispute Resolution Institute (GIDI) to run the SCLA-GIDI
International Accredited Professional Mediator Leadership Training Course from 15
November to 31 December 2022. This program will provide over 50 partners and senior
partners of the Chengdu Lawyers Association with international accredited mediator training
based on EU standards.
