The Chinese European Arbitration Center (CEAC) in Hamburg celebrated its 10th anniversary at its arbitration conference on 13 and 14 September 2018. That is why we supported this year's conference. This year's theme was the Chinese "Belt and Road" initiative (“一带一路”倡议). Speakers, panelists, and conference participants discussed, for example, what contribution arbitration institutions can make to settling disputes related to Belt and Road projects. On the occasion of the anniversary, CEAC invited to a birthday dinner at Hamburg’s Übersee-Club. We are pleased that we were able to support this event and thank Prof. Dr. Eckart BRÖDERMANN for his commitment.
