Dubai was announced as the next host city at the ICMA congress in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The bid to become the first Middle East country to host the ICMA event was presented by the Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre (EMAC).
“I am very pleased and proud to hear that the UAE is the choice to host ICMA XXII in 2022/2023. This brings immense pride to the country and the community as it presents a great opportunity for the region’s maritime law community to showcase their expertise,” said Majid Obaid bin Bashir, chairman and secretary general of EMAC.
“Yet another testament that the maritime fraternity has the confidence in EMAC’s services. We are delighted to be a part of the organising committee to host ICMA XXII. From its first day, EMAC has contributed to the growth of the maritime sector through its arbitration and mediation services to the benefit of the wider Middle East,” he added.
ICMA is forum for maritime arbitrators, mediators and lawyers from around the world to deliberate and exchange views, and is generally attended by arbitrators, lawyers, ship owners, charterers, and commercial professionals.
