This chapter introduces the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), one of the longest-standing and most prominent providers of dispute resolution services in the Asia-Pacific region. According to a leading arbitration journal, ‘[r]egional arbitration pretty much began with the HKIAC. No regional institution has been running for so long. Or with such success.’ It has also been recognized that the emergence of HKIAC proved that the concept of regional arbitration would work. The chapter then summarizes the history of HKIAC, describes its structure and services, provides an overview of recent case statistics, and outlines the arbitration process under the HKIAC Rules.
