Singapore. The Singapore International Arbitration Treaty has come into force from Saturday, helping to resolve disputes at the international level easily. This treaty, known as the Singapore Convention on Mediation of the United Nations, provides an effective method of mediation in settling mutual commercial and large corporate disputes in India and other countries. According to the statement, the convention, which came into effect on Saturday, will promote India’s Ease of Doing Business. By September 1, 2020, about 53 countries including India, US, China and South Korea had signed the treaty. Singapore, Fiji, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Belarus have also joined it. Ecuador has also supported it recently. With this, there will now be more certainty in traders in India and around the world through effective mediation in resolving cross-border trade disputes.

Explain that this is also the first UN treaty to be held in the name of Singapore. A statement issued by the Law Ministry of Singapore on Saturday said that each country has a domestic and expensive process for settlement of disputes. Due to these, many important business issues remain entangled in disputes for a long time. With the enactment of the Convention, applications can be made directly by member states to resolve disputes related to cross-border business. The harmonized and simple and effective framework under the treaty will also save time and legal costs in dispute resolution, which is particularly important for businesses in times of uncertainty during the Kovid-19 pandemic.
