ICC created the Belt and Road Commission to drive the development of ICC’s existing procedures and infrastructure to support Belt and Road disputes.

 

 

In January 2018, ICC created the Belt and Road Commission to promote and develop ICC’s existing services to support Belt and Road disputes. The commission addresses dispute resolution opportunities arising from the Belt and Road initiative and engages with the full spectrum of Belt and Road stakeholders, in China and beyond, to promote ICC dispute resolution services. These include mediation and arbitration for any disputes that arise in relation to infrastructure build and investment.

Chaired by Justin D’Agostino, Global Head of Dispute Resolution at Herbert Smith Freehills and Alternate ICC Court Member for Hong Kong, the commission works to raise awareness of the ICC Court as the “go-to” institution for disputes arising out of China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

The Commission’s objectives include:

  • leveraging ICC’s international coverage to attract Belt and Road disputes;
  • engaging with corporates, state-owned enterprises and governments across all Belt and Road territories; and
  • highlighting Belt and Road dispute resolution at a series of ICC events throughout the region, with the aim of promoting ICC’s capabilities as widely as possible.
