"International arbitration is becoming increasingly popular in Poland, with clients looking for an efficient and cost-effective institution to manage their disputes. VIAC meets these objectives yet does not seem to have enough recognition in Poland. I believe that with the new leadership, new VIAC rules and the number of initiatives that are undertaken it has the potential to increase its presence on the Polish market. I hope that as the VIAC Ambassador, I will be able to facilitate that."
