Arbitration in Mauritius & South African Foreign Direct Investment
MARC collaborated with the South African Chamber of Commerce in Mauritius for the organisation of an informative breakfast session, giving exclusive insights on arbitration in relation to South African Foreign Direct Investment and on Mauritius’ advantage of positioning itself as a preferred arbitration hub in the region. The event was sponsored by Peeroo Chambers and South African Airways.
Roger Wakefield was the Special Guest Speaker at this event. A director in Werksmans Attorneys' Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department since 1996 and a member of the MARC Court, Mr. Wakefield spoke about the expectations of South African parties in relation to arbitration and how they can avail themselves of the institutional framework of MARC for conducting arbitration proceedings. His presentation can be viewed here.
