"I am thrilled to become the VIAC ambassador. I see the need for a neutral arbitration forum in the CEE region. VIAC is a strong and competitive arbitration institution and is the perfect match for such a purpose. Not only because of VIAC’s innovative approach (e.g., its own portal for online case management) but also because of its location in a wonderful Vienna and the learned professionals surrounding and running the institution. I am sure, the CAN initiative will bring even more new initiatives and arbitration events promoting VIAC. VIAC CAN – and so we CAN!"
