The ARBITRI Association held its fourth annual arbitration conference on October 24, 2018 at the Europa Hotel (Vladislava Skarića 5, Sarajevo 71000, Bosnia and Herzegovina). This is, now, a traditional project of the Association, with the aim of promoting arbitration in the business and legal community in BiH, and establishing a platform for the exchange of experiences between local and international practitioners.
The theme of the Fourth Sarajevo Arbitration Days was: “Investment Arbitration in Bosnia and Herzegovina: Lessons Learned and the Way Forward”. Special emphasis is placed on the issue of efficient management of investment projects in BiH (especially in the context of complex construction and energy projects), bearing in mind the need to strengthen the capacity for their management and implementation. This conference represents a step forward in the preparation of practitioners, arbitrators and others interested in the necessary changes. The conference brought together experienced experts in the field of international arbitration who discussed topics relevant to the BiH market.
At the four panels, the speakers first discussed the current investment climate in BiH, current trends and the way forward. The second discussion focused on challenges and best practices in infrastructure disputes, followed by a discussion on energy, infrastructure, and other concession and arbitration agreements. The discussion ended with a workshop on the practical aspects of investment arbitration.
