The New York Convention and the UNCITRAL Model Laws have shaped how arbitral awards are recognised and enforced globally, not to say the least in the Asia Pacific Region. A few jurisdictions within the Asia Pacific Region, such as Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore, are slowly emerging as pro-arbitration jurisdictions in their own right. One has to be mindful that the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards is largely dependent on the judicial and legislative attitudes along with arbitration trends peculiar to a particular jurisdiction. Some of the recent trends in arbitration now revolve around how courts and arbitral institutions facilitate the administration of arbitration cases amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As online methods of dispute resolution might seem to be norm these days, questions as to whether a right to physical hearing does exist in international arbitration are bound to arise. These are some of the issues the panellists will touch upon in discussing recent developments in arbitration in the Asia Pacific Region, notably in Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
