The Thailand Arbitration Center (THAC) and the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) entered into a Cooperation Agreement on 22 June 2017 at the Peace Palace in The Hague. The agreement was signed by Pasit Asawawattanaporn, the Managing Director of the THAC, and Hugo Hans Siblesz, the Secretary-General of the PCA. The Agreement establishes a framework for closer ties between the respective organizations in cooperating for the promotion of arbitration and other means of dispute settlement, and in the exchange of information and expertise for the benefit of practitioners and other stakeholders involved in dispute resolution. Each organization may request of the other the use of facilities and support services for hearings and meetings, and where appropriate, to consider the THAC as the appointing authority under the relevant UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules. The agreement represents yet another step in making Thailand an attractive place for international arbitration and alternative dispute resolution more generally. This follows from the establishment of the THAC by the Arbitration Center Act BE 2550 as a national institution for the purpose of holding arbitration and mediation proceedings. By this agreement, the THAC will host and benefit from the considerable experience of the PCA in providing case administration services.
