ACC Supporting Association
Overview (Program Summary)
ACC Singapore is proud to be a supporting partner to the inaugural India-Singapore Mediation Summit (ISMS): “Making Mediation Mainstream: Reflections from India and Singapore”.
The landmark event on 20 May 2021 will see unprecedented participation from the highest levels of both countries to discuss an increasingly important mechanism to resolve the disputes of our time – mediation.
Highlights include keynote addresses by Honourable Mr Justice N.V. Ramana, Chief Justice of India and The Honourable the Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, Chief Justice of Singapore. This is thought to be the first time that the heads of the judiciary of both countries are Joint Guests of Honour for an event – making this a milestone occasion.
Apart from judicial perspectives, senior Government officials will attend. Capping the inaugural summit is a high-powered fireside chat to discuss, among other topics, what is needed for mediation to enter its golden era. The discussion draws in distinguished panellists from both countries, with the audience able to pose questions during the Q&A session.
Whether you are from the public or private sector, you will benefit from attending the inaugural summit, which will train the spotlight on the latest developments in mediation, explain mediation’s relevance in the context of India and Singapore and explore its utility for businesses facing the risks of disputes, especially cross-border conflicts.
