PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haití (defend.ht) - La Cámara de Conciliación y Arbitraje de Haití (CCAH) inició una serie de reuniones y consultas con las asociaciones profesionales de empresarios a llevar a sus miembros, que tienen disputas entre, a utilizar los servicios ofrecidos por la Cámara.
Le Nouvelliste learned of these findings and has found that the CCAH services - that deal with arbitration and mediation - produce results much faster and less expensive than trials that are used in the ordinary courts.
According to Henri Bazin, who chairs the board of directors composed of nine members representing various professional associations of businessmen and installed in July 2010, the structure of the institution will make it capable of rendering the services for which it was created.
Like many countries, business sectors offering the possibility of using alternative methods of dispute resolution, Haiti has thus equipped for the purpose of this new institution of the Chamber of Conciliation and Arbitration, marking its commitment to modernize the practice in a dispute between the contractors and improve the business climate significantly.
For mediation and arbitration.
Mediation is intended to bring the warring parties to get them to decide for themselves the solution to their differences without the interference of a third person. The other, arbitration, is comparable to a trial resulting in a taxable award to the parties. These are the two main routes available for those interested in these new methods of conflict resolution.
"The maximum time to process a case submitted to arbitration is six months, where the courts may extend to three years ", said George Henry, Secretary General of the CCAH, who announced a broad development program that plans to undertake the board with the business community and those involved in the drafting of contracts (lawyers, notaries, ... services firms) to raise awareness of the benefits of referring to the CCAH and interest to include in their contracts a clause retaining as CCAH Arbitration in case of dispute between the parties.
"Law firms business - with whom contact has been established - welcomed the initiative. Foreign investors continue to question the existence of an arbitration board in the country. Some even make it a condition for investing in Haiti."
"In all international meetings that Haiti is represented," confirmed by the Executive Director of CFI, Guy Lamothe, "the application loops back. Specifically to meet these expectations, several initiatives are underway or have already been made."
