AI Opportunities and Challenges in Latin America

“Years ago Latin-America used to export raw materials on the basis of extractive economies, but Latin-America is now facing a different future. In this future, a modern legal framework is the cornerstone of social and economic progress. International arbitration is the most efficient and effective method for resolving disputes arising from international commerce and international investment. In the future, Latin-American business and investments around the world must be protected not only by contracts and laws but with fair and efficient process (arbitration). International business and investment will increase only if arbitration is offered in dispute resolution.

The Arbitration Intelligence initiative has two awesome objectives: a) the  promotion of transparency and ethics in arbitration; and b) the promotion of the mechanism itself in places were arbitration is not accepted.”
