On 8 April 2013, a delegation of the Bangladesh International Arbitration Centre (BIAC) visited CRCICA. The delegation was presided by Mr. Mahbubur Rahman, BIAC Chairman and Dr. Toufiq Ali, the Chief Director of BIAC.
Visitors learned about CRCICA’s challenges and practices since inception. Discussions focused on institutional set-up and strengthening operational set-up, training, outreach and communication, arbitration and mediation.
The visit was so productive and according to BIAC Director, members of the delegation “were deeply impressed by the Cairo Centre and the successes it attained, and the manner in which it is managed”.
It is noteworthy that BIAC was launched in 2011 by a consortium of three key Bangladeshi business associations, Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI), Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) and the International Chamber of Commerce – Bangladesh (ICCB), with support from the International Finance Corporation (IFC).
