Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, approved a decree on Sunday forming the board of directors of the Dubai International Arbitration Centre (DIAC).

The board will be chaired by Dr. Tarik Humaid Al Tayer, while Dr. Ahmed Saeed Al Suwaidi will serve as its vice chairman.

Other members of the board include Ahmed Saeed Belyouha, Ahmed Mohammed Al Rasheed, Jehad Abdulrazzaq Kazim, Abdulaziz Mohammed Al Marri, and Graham Kenneth Lovett.

Last month, Sheikh Mohammed issued a decree dissolving the Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre and the Dubai International Financial Centre Arbitration Institute, and merged their operations and assets into DIAC.

DIAC is an autonomous non-profit institution that provides businesses with arbitration services.

DIAC’s major objectives include establishing Dubai as a leading centre for alternative dispute resolution, promoting alternative dispute resolution mechanisms and serving the emirate’s financial and business community.

Launched in 2004, DIAC is the largest arbitration centre in the Middle East. Since 2007, it has handled 2,500 cases. The centre was named as one of the top ten centers in the world by the International Arbitration Survey conducted jointly by law firm White & Case and Queen Mary University of London, according to news agency WAM.

Sheikh Mohammed has directed the newly formed board to develop the centre into one of the world’s top five arbitration centres in the next three years.

“Dubai is seeking to further improve its business and investment environment and raise its attractiveness as part of the effort to strengthen the city’s status as a global commercial hub and accelerate its economic momentum,” added Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance.
