Chapter Summary

Mediation is a one of the oldest methods of resolving disputes. There is a long history of using conciliation in Asia. The Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) is empowered by statute to appoint arbitrators and determine the number of arbitrators in the tribunal. There is no legislation in Hong Kong regulating mediation, the accreditation of mediators, or the rules or procedures to be followed. Hong Kong is indeed the legal, cultural, and linguistic bridge between Asia and the rest of the world. Most international commercial disputes will involve contracts drafted in English. A recent mediation conducted in Hong Kong involved a case litigated for five years in seven jurisdictions (of which two were civil law based) on three continents. The use of mediation in Asia is gaining strength.
