Journal of International Arbitration: Non-discrimination between Foreign and Domestic Investment in ASEAN
(+) Read Summary

Partner Chong Yee Leong of Rahmat Lim & Partners and International Counsel Vivekananda N of Allen & Gledhill contributed this article to the Journal of International Arbitration published by Kluwer Law International. This article examines the legal instruments forming the foundation of ASEAN, particularly the ASEAN Comprehensive Investment Agreement (ACIA) 2009. The article examines ASEAN’s instruments and vision in the context of an important international law protection granted to foreign investors: that against discrimination, embodied typically in national treatment and most favoured nation (MFN) standards of protection in international investment treaties. The article studies interpretations and understanding of these standards from other jurisdictions in arbitrations arising from similar bilateral and multilateral investment and trade agreements. It also studies the dispute resolution processes applicable to the ACIA, and how these standards can be and are being implemented in ASEAN today.
