VIAC President Dr. Günther Horvath welcomed the CIETAC European Arbitration Centre in Vienna in its Opening Ceremony held at the Palais Hansen Kempinski on September 28, 2018. The Opening Ceremony was celebrated also by Dr. Lu Pengqi (Vice Chairman CCPIT and Vice Chairman CIETAC), His Excellency Ambassador Li Xiaosi (Ambassador, Chinese Embassy in Austria) and Dr. Zhao Jian (Vice President of CIETAC Arbitration Court). It was followed by “The Belt and Road & Arbitration Forum” and by a visit of the CIETAC/CCPIT delegation at the VIAC offices. CIETAC (China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission) was established in 1956 by CCPIT (China Council for the Promotion of International Trade).

VIAC congratulates CIETAC for choosing Vienna as the seat of the European Arbitration Centre. The reason for this is manifold: Vienna is a major international city in the heart of Europe, it is home to UNCITRAL and to the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, as well as seat of the Energy Community Secretariat's Dispute Resolution and Negotiation Centre. In addition, Vienna was voted the most livable city in the world by both Economist and Mercer.

The BRI (Belt and Road Initiative) is a big chance for the arbitration institutions to cooperate closer. VIAC is highly interested to get deeply involved in arbitrations arising out the BRI. It stands ready whenever the parties, e.g. from China and European countries want to agree on a neutral venue and institution. The same applies in all cases where parties from BRI countries seek to arbitrate before a non-involved forum. We consider the BRI as a great opportunity to act as neutral and highly professional Dispute Resolution Institution.

The opening of the CIETAC European Arbitration Centre in Vienna was preceded by long term as well as most recent cooperation between the two arbitration institutions:
