extremely humbled by the Board's decision. I believe the appointment of an Australian arbitrator to the Court will help position Australia as a global leader and centre for international arbitration."

The LCIA is one of the longest-established international institutions for commercial dispute resolution.

Jones added that he welcomes the recent decision by the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General to adopt uniform national laws on domestic arbitration.

“Uniform national laws will ensure resolution is provided quickly and

effectively, and will further promote Australia as a centre for international arbitration,” he said.
