The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a massive project spearheaded by China. The BRI intends to connect the overland economic corridors from China to Europe via Central Asia as well as through maritime trade routes from China to the Middle East, Africa and Europe. It is common for disputes to arise in cross-border infrastructure transactions. They may end up being resolved by way of commercial arbitration or investor-state arbitration or before international commercial courts such as the China International Commercial Court.
This session will see representatives from arbitral institutions, arbitrators and CICC judges discuss what are the multitude of issues that commonly arise out of BRI projects.
