"I wanted to become a VIAC Ambassador, because VIAC is the pioneering arbitral institution in Central and South-Eastern Europe, and regarded as one of the leading global arbitration institutions. The Vienna Rules 2021 are definitely tailored to the needs of the parties and involve recent developments in the arbitration world. VIAC also has a quite successful case administration record and VIAC’s method of administration of proceedings saves time and costs. Arbitration is on the rise in Türkiye for the last decade and seems become more and more common in the upcoming years taking into account the growing and gigantic interest among the practitioners. VIAC has a huge potential to become more popular for Turkish parties and also Türkiye seated international arbitration proceedings in the near future."
