As the Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre (EMAC) marks its third year of operation, the Centre has not slowed in its effort to provide awareness about its alternative dispute resolution support and services which focus primarily on maritime, offshore energy and logistics. This is one of the reasons why the Centre has sponsored this year’s IBA maritime and transport conference, themed: Opportunities and Risks in Shipping in 2019 taking place in Oslo until the 22nd May. On the agenda are key topics which include arbitration, offshore maritime insolvency and restructuring, IMO sulphur emissions limits, marine insurance, etc.
“Participating at such international key events is of utmost importance for EMAC. These avenues help us spread the word of our core messaging; EMAC is a Centre for the maritime and legal communities and we are here to provide full support,” said Mr. Majid Obaid bin Bashir, Acting Chairman and Secretary General, EMAC.
“it is not only a pivotal opportunity to engage with our regular stakeholders, but also provides a platform to form new collaborations with the legal community,” he added.The International Bar Association (IBA) – the global voice of the legal profession – is the foremost organisation for international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies for over 70 years.Last year, EMAC attended the Annual IBA Conference in Rome, and will be back in June for the one of most sought-after shipping events worldwide, NOR Shipping in Oslo.
