The Quiet Triumph in Beijing and Hong Kong
The world tour of The Quiet Triumph: How Arbitration Changed the World continues. Next stops are Beijing and Hong Kong.
The Quiet Triumph featured some international arbitration experts from China, including Professor Tang Houzhi, the former Vice Chairman of the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC). Professor Tang spoke about his experience when disputes arose between China and the West, which made it difficult for parties to agree on the seat of arbitration. In this situation, parties often agreed on Stockholm, because of Sweden’s long known reputation of neutrality. The movie also featured some younger generation, such as Jessica Fei from Herbert Smith Freehills and Dai Wen from Mannheimer Swartling.
CIETAC is hosting a movie screening in Beijing on 14 June 2017 and Hong Kong International Arbitration Center (HKIAC) is hosting similar event in Hong Kong the next day. Both events will kick off with a short seminar where speakers, including SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson and SCC Vice Chairperson Jakob Ragnwaldh will address different trends in international arbitration, including emergency arbitrator proceedings.
The event is a collaboration between CIETAC, HKIAC, Herbert Smith Freehills and Mannheimer Swartling.
