Eversheds Harry Elias is proud that Partner Shaun Leong, an international arbitration specialist, is the first Singaporean to be appointed on the panel of Arbitrators with the Tashkent International Arbitration Centre (TIAC). Sitting in a strategic pivot of the ancient Silk Road as well as the modern Digital Silk Road, the TIAC is a prime centre to resolve cross border Belt & Road disputes. The TIAC is also proud to promote the resolution of technology disputes, where the lex arbitri has found disputes involving issues of blockchain, cryptocurrency, and artificial intelligence to be arbitrable.

Tashkent (Тошкент, تاشكینت) is the capital of Uzbekistan, which is Central's Asia's most populous country that is undergoing dramatic business reform, with China leading the charge in foreign investment. CNA‘s documentary “Uzbekistan, The Buckle on the Belt & Road”, can be found here.
