Asian International Arbitration Centre

Arbitration is widely used among international shipping operators to solve almost every kind of dispute and, consequently, arbitral clauses are included in many maritime contract forms. With Asia’s growing demands today, it is not surprising to see Arbitration centres flourishing in key Asian cities. The Asian International Arbitration Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is proud to offer its facilities and services as a choice venue in Asia for resolving maritime and commercial disputes.
