Two MOUs inked in China to boost Singapore arbitration profile


Singapore's reputation as a global arbitration hub has received a further boost, with the signing of two memoranda of underststanding (MOU) in Beijing by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC). One is with China's largest arbitration centre and the other, with Peking University (PKU) Law School.

The MOU with the university, signed yesterday, will see them collaborate and include a module in the law school's programme. It also commits them to letting the school's students intern at SIAC and to promote joint training workshops, among others.

SIAC chief executive officer Lim Seok Hui, who signed the MOU , described "PKU Law (as) one of the world's leading academic institutions" and lauded the opportunity to work closely with it.
