Singapore is currently one of the world's leading arbitration destinations. In addition to having recently hosted the 21st Congress of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), the reputation of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) and Maxwell Chambers as being among the leading arbitration-related institutions in the world is testament to the growing significance of international arbitration in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as to the leading role that Singapore has played in contributing to the collective jurisprudence, expertise, activity, and interest in international arbitration.

It provides selected ‘snapshots’ of the current legislative framework as well as recent judicial decisions in the Singapore courts on issues relating to international arbitration.
