Mauritius Taking Centre Stage In International Arbitration

Thursday, 29th July 2016

"The Congress of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (commonly known as "ICCA") is the largest regular conference devoted to international arbitration. It takes place every two years, on each occasion in a different city and country, bringing together eminent Judges, arbitrators and practitioners specialised in the field of commercial arbitration under one roof. The 23rd ICCA Congress was held in Mauritius, the first held in the African Continent in its 50 years history, from the 8th to 11th of May 2016.

By choosing Mauritius, ICCA recognised the considerable and continuing efforts of Mauritius to establish itself as a neutral and state-of-the art arbitration venue for a region of the world that could derive great benefit from more effective dispute resolution processes in light of the ever-increasing number of arbitrations involving Africa related parties and projects. ICCA Mauritius 2016 was attended by over 800 delegates, of whom about a third came from Africa.
