Welcome to Vietnam ADR Week (VAW) 2023
The Vietnam ADR Week 2023 (VAW 2023) is co-hosted by Vietnam International Arbitration Centre (VIAC) and Vietnam Business Lawyers Club (VBLC) in an effort to establish a platform for sharing knowledge and practical experience about risk prevention, management and dispute resolution methods.
The first-ever VAW hosted by VIAC in 2020 grew into a significant series of activities that connected domestic and international arbitration practitioners and served as a forum for ADR experts to express their views for the improvement of the quality of arbitration. The Week so continues to be organized with the goal of contributing to enhance the competitiveness of the economy and business community, and facilitate the economic, trade, investment, scientific and technological cooperation between domestic and foreign entities in Vietnam.
This is the very first time the Vietnam ADR Week is co-organised by VBLC and VIAC, the two leading organisations in legal practice and arbitration advocacy in Vietnam, in association with the direct supports from reputable organisations in the arbitration and ADRs in global and Asia, such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA), Singaporean International Arbitration Center (SIAC), Asian International Arbitration Center (AIAC), Korean Commercial Arbitration Board (KCAB), etc.
The VAW 2023 will focus on legal risk prevention and dispute resolution and how those activities should adapt to the vibrant Asia, strongly bouncing back post COVID. VAW 2023 is also an opportunity to extend our outreach and strengthen partnerships, enabling us to build connections within Vietnam, across the region, and throughout the world. Through these connections, we hope to enhance the significance of arbitration in Vietnam, and eventually establish Vietnam as a prominent choice for resolving disputes between parties.
