SIAC and The Japan Commercial Arbitration Association (JCAA) are proud to present a seminar on “Arbitration for Japanese Companies in South East Asia” at the Japanese Association, Singapore. This event is free of charge.


The number of Japanese companies seeking to invest in South  East Asia has almost doubled in the last two years. Japan supplies South East Asian factories with components and parts put into cars, electronics, and other products for export, including back to Japan itself. Japanese companies do not limit their investment in this region to just manufacturing, but now consider the region as a big consumer market where they can sell more financial products and consumer goods.

Recent examples include: Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Co. who confirmed this month, it agreed to pay 7 trillion rupiah for half of PT Sinar Mas Multiarta’s life insurance unit in Indonesia, and trading company Mitsui & Co. who in April bought a 30 percent stake in Malaysian hospital operator Integrated Healthcare Holdings for 3.3 billion ringgit.

Not surprisingly, the rise in the number of deals, the size of transactions, and their complexity have resulted in an increased demand for a reliable, efficient and effective mode of dispute resolution.

Join lawyers and in-house counsels in the audience and those taking part in the panel sessions at this seminar, who are now working on some of the largest, most complex deals and transactions around as they discuss key dispute resolution topics for Japanese Companies in South East Asia.
