Construction Disputes Partner David Nitek will be speaking on the following panel:

11.45: Session two: Everybody wants to rule the world – Belt and Road and implications for construction arbitration

In this session our speakers discuss what the Belt and Road projects means for the future of construction arbitration.  Paris has been the traditional home of construction arbitration ever since FIDIC chose ICC arbitration as its default arbitration provision.  But with Chinese money funding and Chinese contractors building infrastructure on every continent, will the rise in Chinese rooted projects see construction arbitration practitioners moving East?
