Maldives International Arbitration Center and Ceylon Chamber of Commerce are also participating in the seminar.

Speaking at the seminar, Chief Justice Dr. Ahmed Abdulla Didi said that the establishment of the Maldives International Arbitration Center is a landmark achievement for the country.

Chief Justice Dr. Ahmed Abdulla gave a speech at the seminar

As we know, our economy has been developing and expanding. Our share in international trading increasing, and more and more foreign investments are coming in. We can see from our annually published judicial statistics that the number of commercial cases filed in our courts are increasing at a fast rate.

~ Chief Justice Dr. Ahmed Abdulla Didi

Chief Justice Didi also praised the success of the Department of Judicial of Administration (DJA) workshop for lawyers, judges, and court employees held in March 2011, highlighting that it resulted in major changes to the courts.

He noted that, as the result of the workshop, a report was compiled recommending the establishment of a mediation center in Maldives. He said the UNDP in 2012 funded the visit of an international consultancy firm for this project.
