Based on the strides chalked in recent years by the Kenyan government in connection with the defense of two high profile investment arbitrations and the establishment of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), ratified by 24 out of 55 countries, the East Africa International Arbitration platform will further seek to promote arbitration practice as the best means to resolve commercial disputes.
