Workshop

Japan is currently the third largest import and export market of Viet Nam. Good political relations, the cultural understanding and harmony between the people of the two countries have been being a solid foundation for the positive and sustainable growth of trade relations between Vietnam and Japan. The year 2020 is expected to be a year of outstanding development of relations between Japan and Vietnam, unfortunately trade between the two nations has been facing great difficulties from the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the epidemic, goods and human transport are obstructed or even shut down, critically damaging trade activities.

Vietnam has now well controlled its epidemic in the country and has begun to re-establish the "new normal” state for economic development; however, commercial transactions are still significantly affected by COVID - 19: disruption of supply chains and consumption chains lead to unfulfillment of contractual obligations or unreasonably high costs of implementation, exposing many businesses to legal risks (breach of contracts) that might result in disputes and unwanted lawsuits. With the aim of furnishing Vietnamese and Japanese enterprises with suitable alternative dispute resolution options to assist the sustainable growth of trade relations, Vietnam International Arbitration Center (VIAC) and Vietnam and Research Center for Sustainable Peace, The University of Tokyo as co-organizes the Conference on Commercial Arbitration and Commercial Mediation: To improve the dispute processing by Vietnam and Japan.
