For Indonesia as a large archipelagic country locating between the Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean, Australia and the Continental of Asia, maritime sectors form a very strategic issue in the country’s political and economic development. President Joko Widodo, the Government Indonesia, has proclaimed that the Indonesian economy should attach great importance to the development of all fields in the maritime sector, such as sea-transport, port development, fishery, deep sea-mining, law enforcement at sea and other related matters.
As a response to this policy BANI Arbitration Center in collaboration with Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (SCMA) on 06 April 2015 will conduct an International Seminar on Maritime Law and Arbitration. The seminar will discuss practical issues on arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution and the enforcement of international arbitration awards. It will also discuss various legal issues that may arise when Indonesia will enter ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) era at the end of this year.
AEC will lead to regional economic integration, envisaging a single market and production base, a highly competitive economic region, a region of equitable economic development and a fully integrated in to the development of maritime and trade sectors. In this respect to increase the cross-border maritime/trade is there a need for harmonizing maritime legislations and international arbitration laws.
The seminar will discuss to what extent arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution can be used for setting disputes, such disputes not only between parties, but also between states or between party and state.
