The current crisis of the lethal pandemic COVID-19 has taught us the value of being prepared for pandemics. As the world emerges from the current pandemic, the world of work will make some fundamental shifts that address physical and emotional challenges. This means having policies and practices ready to go when needed. BIAC has reacted to the current crisis and the future ‘new normal’ for the handling of dispute resolution, not only under the existing BIAC Rules, but also by quickly converting cases, originally slated to be in person, to the virtual, cost effective and efficient system that allows cases to be arbitrated and mediated through the use of Virtual ADR Methods. We are committed to exert our best efforts to make BIAC the indispensable hub of ADR in Bangladesh.Read More
Bangladesh has won an international arbitration on February 28 against Niko, the Canadian company responsible for the blowout in the Chhatak gas field (Tengratila neighbourhoods) in Sunamganj in 2005.
Counsel representing Bangladesh against Niko said in a recently published interview
“The timely and priceless support from the prime minister, the law minister, the state minister for energy and top energy sector officials made the [victory over Niko] possible.
International arbitration cases are often complex and require special expertise. ….. all developing nations, not just Bangladesh, often face an uphill task in successfully defending cases before international tribunals. This is where the question of leadership comes in. Without effective political will and leadership the sovereign states generally lose out.”
