SAL Belt and Road Initiative Series – Risk Issues and Management, and the BRI

Date: 27 Aug 2019

Synopsis: This seminar will seek to highlight the general principles of risk management, with particular reference to the BRI countries, emphasising that risk management can also lead to value creation, if handled transparently and with an eye to repeat transactions. Moreover,
Singapore’s own experience with these issues and the legal community’s role in upholding the highest standards can be transformed into
a competitive advantage as BRI projects move forward throughout the region. This seminar will seek to draw on the expertise of our legal
community, with a view to leveraging it for both the region and in the context of the BRI.

Registration Fee: SGD 128.40 (Inclusive of 7% GST)

SAL Belt and Road Initiative Series – Dispute Settlement and the BRI

Date: 29 Aug 2019

Synopsis: This seminar will examine dispute avoidance strategies, and dispute resolution options such as arbitration and mediation, particularly in the context of BRI cross-border, investment-related disputes. The relevance of the Singapore Convention on Mediation – which is expected to be signed in August 2019 – to the BRI, will form part of this discussion. The new Singapore Infrastructure Dispute Management Protocol will also be covered briefly in this discussion. (The Protocol will be covered in greater detail in the next seminar on BRI and Infrastructure.)

Registration Fee: SGD 128.40 (Inclusive of 7% GST)

SAL Belt and Road Initiative Series – BRI and Infrastructure

Date: 10 Sep 2019

Synopsis: This seminar will allude to some of the major projects carried out under the BRI umbrella, with a view to distilling useful lessons regarding the ingredients leading to successful execution. The infrastructure seminar, which comes at the end of the SAL’s seminar series, also offers a chance for us to look back at the entire BRI landscape. Previous seminars concerning risk management, international trade, and dispute resolution, including an examination of significant initiatives, such as the Singapore Infrastructure Dispute Management Protocol, all provide additional context for the discussion of infrastructure and its relevance to the BRI. Thus, this final seminar will draw upon and recap parts of our previous discussions in order to tie-up the BRI series and thereby lay a foundation for assessing, and ideally seizing, the commercial opportunities presented by the evolving relationship between ASEAN and the BRI.
