SIAC India Representative Offices

SIAC India Representative Offices
Mumbai, India

In 2013, SIAC established its first overseas representative office in Mumbai, India. A second representative office in India was opened in GIFT, Gujarat, in 2017. The offices embody SIAC's firm commitment and close ties to India. Indian parties have consistently been one of the top three users of SIAC over the last five years and ranked as the top foreign user in 2013, 2015 and 2016. This growing trend follows on from recent years where the number of new cases involving at least one Indian party has grown steadily, increasing tenfold in the period from 2001 to 2012. Recognising the significant role played by India towards SIAC's success as an international arbitral institution, SIAC established a presence in India to interact closely with the business and legal communities in India and develop greater awareness of institutional arbitration.
 
The primary objectives of the Indian representative offices are to:
facilitate the dissemination of necessary information on arbitration at SIAC and in Singapore;
promote the use of institutional arbitration and SIAC as a leading international arbitration institution;
promote Singapore as an arbitration destination for Indian parties;
create a line of communication for SIAC and the community in Singapore with key players for international arbitration in India; and
work closely with the judiciary and the government in India on policy initiatives, regular exchange of ideas on live issues, and legislative change, amongst others.
 
The function of administering arbitrations under the SIAC Rules continues to be handled by SIAC's multinational Secretariat in Singapore, irrespective of the seat of arbitration or the nationality of disputing parties. The Secretariat is able to, and has, administered arbitrations seated outside of Singapore in various jurisdictions, including India. Singapore is no longer the default seat of arbitration under the latest SIAC Rules. Parties may agree to hold hearings at any venue that is convenient or appropriate.
