Paschalis Paschalidis

"I am excited to be VIAC’s ambassador for Luxembourg and Greece at a time of significant challenges for the EU and in particular for Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. The VIAC is a major international arbitration institution with a stellar reputation for the efficient handling of disputes. It can claim a bigger role in this filed as the CEE and SEE countries will continue to come closer together in the current shifting geopolitical context. I look forward to working together with VIAC and my fellow VIAC ambassadors to help strengthen VIAC's position as a European arbitration hub."
