The Mauritius international arbitration centre will begin operations as an independent centre on 27 July 2018. A new arbitration law will also come into force.

This new institution follows the termination of the contract between the London Court of International Arbitration and the current arbitration centre in Mauritius.

This centre will be financed by the Mauritian government, but will stay independent in its decision making. The chair of the Advisory Board will be Professor Emmanuel Gaillard
