The LMAA President, Ian Gaunt, attended the Guangzhou - Nansha Conference in April as one of the speakers.

The conference was in Nansha on the outskirts of Guangzhou. Nansha is variously described as a Free Trade Zone (FTZ) or a new area with the existing Guangdong Free Trade Zone. In any event it is in effect a new city with mostly new amenities including a large container port and cruise terminal.


The conference was organised by the Guangzhou Arbitration Commission and the Nansha International Arbitration Commission (NSIAC).


SIAC was represented by its Shanghai rep and SCMA by Dennis Chan. HKIAC was represented by Y C Chan and in addition there were representatives of the Hong Kong Institute of Arbitration.


The other external keynote speakers were Stephen Hofmeyr QC of 7 King's Bench Walk and Michael Schneider, the Chairman of the Swiss Arbitration Association.


The conference was very high profile in the Guangzhou area with the usual contingent of (rather impressive) party officials, academics and practitioners including Mr Wang Jing and Rolmax’ Zhang Yixing.
