Arbitration in the CIS Region

It was a pleasure to welcome visitors from the Tashkent International Arbitration Centre (TIAC) on 22 March to discuss the work of the centre, which was established in November 2018 under the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Uzbekistan. Peter Caldwell, Chartered Arbitrator and HKGCC Legal Committee member, together with Asia & Africa Committee Chairman Jonathan Lamport, welcomed Diana Bayzakova, Director, TIAC, and Diora Ziyaeva, TIAC Court of Arbitration Member and Partner at Dentons New York City, and discussed the latest developments in dispute resolution and arbitration internationally and in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region. TIAC works closely with Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), with both having entered into a cooperation agreement to adopt the TIAC-HKIAC Cross Institutional Arbitration Rules in late 2022. They also discussed possible collaboration with HKGCC to help members minimize risks when working with new partners.
