China Belt and Road disputes set to fuel mediation's global rise

Singapore moves to take advantage of Asian growth as preferences shift away from arbitration. When in June a Kenyan court blocked construction of the country's first coal-fired power station, it was not only a blow for the project's Chinese backers, say lawyers, it was also a sign that China's so-called Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) might benefit from better dispute resolution.


Warranty & Discontinuation of Product

Hi everybody, Now we have a situation here in terms of warranty and product discontinuation : A large facility was being constructed which required ~1500 architecturally exposed fixtures of a particular style/model. A Purchase Order was drawn up with terms of Warranty of 10 years. This was in 2014. Cut to 2019, replacement of 9 fixtures are required (5# attributable under warranty provisions + 4# misused by the Purchaser) and it is now learnt that the fixtures itself is discontinued from the product line since 2017. It is not possible to install 9 fixtures of a different model / look as these are architecturally exposed fixtures / products. The Supplier has politely declined to answer the conflict of giving a 10 year warranty ending 2024 and discontinuing the product in 2017. Q1: Advise on possible ways such a situation has been contractually dealt with. Q2: How can one estimate the damages towards default by the Supplier in committing to its obligations under the Warranty Period, since the product has been discontinued? Thanks in Advance
