EAC countries to embrace culture of Alternative Dispute Resolution
East African Community (EAC) member countries should embrace the culture of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), ensuring that disputes are determined using arbitration and other friendly mechanisms of addressing commercial disagreements.
Justice Minister Johnston Busingye said this will help reduce the backlog of cases in the commercial courts, among others.
The minister said International arbitration has gradually grown over the past years, and given the increasing economic activities, it is becoming significant to our economic and justice sectors.
Busingye was opening a three-day fellowship training programme organised by the Kigali International Arbitration Centre (KIAC) in partnership with Chattered Institute of Arbitration, UK.
