The first Cyprus Arbitration Day successfully took place in Limassol on 21st and 22nd May 2023. Cyprus Arbitration Forum, set up by 22 leading Cyprus firms and a local institute, CEDRAC, organised an excellent event with 165 participants from 20 countries around the world, including distinguished experts in the field of international arbitration.
