Dr. Kamalinne Pinitpuvadol, Secretary General of AALCO informed the President of the BEIHAI Asia International Arbitration Centre that
The BEIHAI Asia International Arbitration Centre (BAIAC), Singapore, was launched on 8 August 2019. Established by Beihai Arbitration Commission which is headquartered in Beihai, Guangxi Province, the move represents the first-ever establishment of an international arbitration centre in Singapore by a Chinese arbitration commission.
The impetus for the establishment of BAIAC in Singapore can be attributed to two core factors. Firstly, the need to provide lower-cost and efficient international arbitration for small to medium value disputes, which are prevalent in today’s common cross-border commercial transactions, including for Chinese parties and secondly, Singapore’s position as an international dispute resolution hub is also trusted to serve the region for disputes arising from Asia trade cooperation, and investments between Chinese and ASEAN parties.
