2) Webinar on Important Aspects of 1st Hearing of the Arbitral Tribunal


Arbitration is one of the important types of dispute resolution in the construction industry because it provides resolution faster than litigation in court. The parties have the benefit of selecting many things, such as the arbitrators, the applicable law, language, seat of arbitration, procedures, etc. Moreover, the arbitral award is not subject to review by the court. It can also be enforced by the courts of other member countries of the New York Convention. However, the court may set aside or refuse enforcement in a limited circumstance. 


The first hearing of the Arbitral Tribunal is a very important procedure to create understanding between the parties of the dispute to avoid any circumstances which may cause the arbitral award to be set aside or refused enforcement. The understanding of the parties in the first hearing can also expedite the arbitral process.

2) Online Course on IFRS Series: Understanding IFRS 17 (Insurance Contract)

IFRS 17 replaces IFRS 4 on accounting for insurance contracts. IFRS 17 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2023. However, each country will differ in terms of the effective date of adopting IFRS 17. For example, IFRS 17 would be effective from 1 January 2024 in Thailand and from 1 January 2025 in Indonesia. The financial services authorities of each country encourages the insurance industry to adopt IFRS 17 as soon as possible. The features in insurance products are increasingly diverse which entails a sound accounting standards. IFRS 17 will make the Financial Statements of insurance companies more comparable with other industries such as banking and other financial services. The most significant thing in IFRS 17 compared to the previous standard IFRS 4 is that the premiums are not recognized directly as income. There are 3 methods of revenue recognition in the insurance industry, namely the Building Block Approach, Premium Allocation Approach, and Variable Fee Approach.
