Project Summary

The EC endorsed the SELI Work Plan for Developing a Cooperative Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) Framework for MSMES in B2B Transactions and Use of modern technology for Dispute Resolution and Electronic Agreement Management in 2017 (“SELI ODR Workplan”).

As provided in the SELI ODR Workplan, the way forward may include the following pathway: build a pilot, continue to promote harmonisation of the relevant laws for ODR using existing international instruments, cross-APEC collaboration, conduct relevant research/information gathering, design ODR platform, develop ODR procedural rules, capacity building, and leverage private sector and academic community support, and at the same time, explore the use of other modern technology such as the use of blockchain for automated or smart contracts for contract management or enforcement and prevention of disputes.

This project aims to organize a workshop in the margins of EC1 2019 to take stock of the progress made under the SELI ODR Workplan by bringing together member economies to explore and discuss in greater detail the achievements and challenges in relation to various pathways identified in the SELI ODR Workplan. The project will also serve as a platform where member economies can exchange ideas and present relevant research findings and best practices.

Outcomes of the workshop will be compiled into a report, allowing key lessons learnt to be broadly shared among APEC economies and the international community.
