Arbitration has become the mainstream method to resolve business conflicts in international trade and commerce today. It is now also widely accepted as the only form of legally binding dispute resolution for differences arising from cross border trade and commerce. Robust activities and volume of trade globally perpetuates the need for, thus reliance on arbitration not just to resolve disputes but facilitate growth of international businesses and investments.
