Third Party Event

30 Aug 2018 - 31 Aug 2018

EAIAC provides a platform for international arbitration practitioners, corporate lawyers, academia professionals, business community stakeholders and in-house counsel from East Africa and beyond to share best practices, network, and deliberate on international arbitration and investments.

2018 is the year for African introspection. In trade, 44 members of the African Union recently signed the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (ACFTA).
