BCDR-AAA launched five day out-reach campaign
Sheikha Haya bint Rashed Al Khalifa, Chair of the Bahrain Chamber for Dispute Resolution - the BCDR-AAA - today announced the launch of the Chamber’s five day out-reach campaign in the Kingdoms of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia beginning at the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) in Manama. H.E. Sheikha Haya bint Rashed Al Khalifa was joined by Richard Naimark, Senior Vice President of International and Mark Appel, Senior Vice President for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, from the BCDR-AAA’s joint partner, the American Arbitration Association.
The aim of the campaign is to reach out to professional business organisations, lawyers, bankers and engineers in the Kingdoms of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to promote and attract trade and investment in the region. The BCDR-AAA will be emphasising the importance of a robust legal framework providing commercial organisations with the reassurance they need to conduct their business effectively.
Her Excellency Shaikha Haya Bint Rashed Al-Khalifa said: “The Kingdoms of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have traditionally shared a very close and special relationship based on a shared vision to preserve and promote the prosperity and commercial growth of the region. I am particularly grateful to the lawyers and business professionals in both Kingdoms for welcoming us so warmly and for co-operating with us to raise the standard of alternative dispute resolution in the region.”
“I am very impressed with the reception we have had from the BCCI today and hope to collaborate with them to support businesses in Bahrain who seek help to resolve their disputes expeditiously and fairly.”
Richard Naimark, Senior Vice President of International, AAA said: “Alternative dispute resolution is a very effective mechanism not only for solving disputes after the event but also for being prepared should a dispute arise. The BCDR-AAA offers tailor-made solutions for businesses in the shape of pre-emptive dispute resolution clauses which can be inserted into their contracts. I believe, that working with organisations like the BCCI throughout the region, the BCDR-AAA can help businesses in Bahrain and regionally to carry out their business safe in the knowledge that they have a reliable legal framework to support them.”
Following the BCCI, the BCDR-AAA will travel to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to visit the Chambers of Commerce in Riyadh and Dammam before returning again to Bahrain to meet the lawyers’ and engineers’ societies and the Bankers Association of Bahrain.
