The 5th FDI Moot Asia-Pacific Regional Rounds

HKIAC is pleased to be a supporting organisation of the 5th FDI Moot Asia-Pacific Regional Rounds.

The Korean Commercial Arbitration Board (KCAB) is holding the 5th FDI Moot Asia-Pacific Regional Rounds with Center for International Legal Studies (CILS) and Seoul National University School of Law.

Increasing international investment, the proliferation of international investment treaties and contracts have contributed to the development of international law that defines obligations between host States and foreign investors and refers to internationalized arbitration procedures for resolving related disputes. The FDI Moot addresses such investment disputes.

The 2017 FDI Moot case considers how Mercuria, a State faced with a “greyscale” epidemic, has treated a foreign investor, patent-holder of the active ingredient in an effective greyscale treatment, by first breaching a supply agreement, which was the basis for the investor’s production facility investments in Mercuria, and failing to enforce the consequent arbitration award and by then granting a compulsory license to a state-owned manufacturer.
