CIArb is set to expand its reach to the State of Qatar with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and the opening of a new branch.
In the MoU with the Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre (QICDRC) on 13 December 2017, CIArb committed to work together with QICDRC in developing training programmes in arbitration, mediation and adjudication as well as other events to promote alternative dispute resolution in Qatar.
In signing the MoU, CIArb Director General, Anthony Abrahams, said:
“We are delighted to have signed an agreement with QICDRC to jointly develop and deliver key education programmes, courses and events to promote the ADR landscape in Qatar. Following the new Qatar Arbitration Law, Qatar is an exciting place to be. We look forward to working with QICDRC to this end and are pleased to have established a CIArb branch in Qatar.”
