Singapore Mediation Convention Signed

The Singapore Mediation Convention facilitates the enforcement of international settlement agreements arising from mediation. Modelled on the New York Convention, the Convention provides a new legal framework for the recognition of international settlement agreements and applies to ‘international’ settlement agreements resulting from mediation which have been concluded in writing by the parties. A settlement agreement is considered to be ‘international’ if either at least two parties to the settlement agreement have their places of business in different countries; or the country to which the settlement agreement is closely connected to, or to be performed, is different from the respective parties’ places of business.
