Lahore International Disputes Weekend 2023 (LIDW’23) is a three-day event by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Pakistan Branch. It is was organized in collaboration with MK Consultus LLP, planned to undertake from 19th to 21st May 2023. 

The main objective of LIDW’23 is to provide a single platform for foreign corporates to establish their footing in the Pakistani dispute resolution market in time for the completion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects. CPEC came into existence on the 15th of April 2015 between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Pakistan’s Prime Minister. It is a 70 billion USD infrastructure and energy project. It promises a doorway for industrialization, socio-economic and agricultural cooperation, promoting business and consolidating developments in Pakistan. CPEC now finds itself within the final folds of its completion, and naturally so, on the verge of dispute eruption.

LIDW’23 presents itself as an opportunity that should not be missed, particularly for foreign entities that wish to expand and establish themselves in an unexplored but rich jurisdiction such as Pakistan.

Now is the ideal time for foreign corporates to establish their seating in the dispute resolution market and acquaint themselves with the intricacies and workings of CPEC.

LIDW’23 is also key in the discussion of options and suggestions that make the litigation landscape effective in terms of case disposal. The diverse audience offered by LIDW’23, which includes local and foreign best practitioners, the top-rank judiciary of Pakistan, International ADR Centers and representatives from different sectors such as Energy, Power and Infrastructure to convene under one roof and address the 2.2 million backlogs of cases choking the justice system in Pakistan. The situation has caused delays and hindered access to justice for many. And placed an unruly burden on the existing dispute resolution system.
