Dear Valued KIAC Stakeholder, partners and friends
Kigali International Arbitration Centre (KIAC), is delighted to be a strategic partner of East Africa International Arbitration Conference (EAIAC) 2019. The conference will take place on:
Thursday 29th & Friday 30th August 2019 at Radisson Blu Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya.
Conference Overview :
This year’s theme is ‘Government Contracting and Investment Disputes: Lessons for States and Investors‘. The conference will explore the full spectrum of government contracting from procurement and PPPs (public private partnerships), tender disputes, dispute mitigation in government contracts, investment arbitration and arbitrating with governments in African centres. In 2018, the Kenya government successfully defended 2 high profile investment arbitrations: an ICC arbitration relating to the power sector; and an ICSID arbitration in the mining sector. There is focus across the continent on investment in renewable energy, sustainable development, agriculture, healthcare, and education. How can governments and investors better contract? Disputes are expensive, even for the winner –can they be mitigated? Can damages be better assessed and recovered? Do African international arbitration centres and practitioners have a place in investment arbitration? We will answer these questions at EAIAC 2019.
We invite you all to attend this important conference; for more information please follow the conference website here.
