"Vienna has always been a dispute resolution center, particularly for center and eastern european parties. Having the privilege to practice arbitration in Vienna, I had a chance and an honor to be involved in arbitrations administered by VIAC and conducted under its rules. VIAC's flexibility, culture understanding and geographic closeness makes it one of the best fitted foreign arbitration institutions for Moldovan business environment. Since international arbitration in Moldova is perhaps less popular than other CEE countries, as an ambassador I would help the Moldovan arbitration and business communities to understand VIAC and its potential role for them."
