• IPBA – CIC Construction Conference 2014

    2 January 2014

    “Dispute Avoidance and Resolution within the Construction Industry – An Asia-Pacific Perspective”

    IMG_8940There has been a lot of recent discussion about better ways of avoiding and resolving disputes in the construction industry which is generally known to be fraught with disputes.   Various jurisdictions in the Asia Pacific region such as Singapore, Malaysia and various states in Australia have introduced statutory adjudication to various extents for the effective resolution of disputes in particular during the course of construction projects.  Contractual schemes are also introduced making dispute resolution measures such as mediation a first step in multi-tiered dispute resolution provisions.

    This is the first conference co-organised by the IPBA and the CIC in Hong Kong which provides a forum for the timely discussion of the latest trends and measures of dispute avoidance and resolution within the construction industry in the region.

    The CIC in particular has taken a lead in the examination of various effective dispute avoidance and resolution measures suitable for the Hong Kong environment. The Hong Kong Government has been proactive in introducing dispute avoidance and resolution measures in public works contracts and is currently actively considering the introduction of a statutory scheme.

    It would be immensely useful to share with and learn from the speakers from around the region and from stakeholders in the construction industry about the use of effective dispute avoidance and resolution measures in the industry.

    This is a conference which every lawyer, professional and practitioner in the construction industry should attend
