About MARC

The Mauritius Arbitration Week is organised by MARC, the MCCI Arbitration and Mediation Center. MARC is an autonomous, non-governmental Alternative Dispute Resolution branch of the Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Industry (“MCCI”), the first private sector institution established in 1850 to represent businesses. MCCI is a non-profit making organization that cooperates with and is well regarded by corporations, governments, the legal sector and other private sector stakeholders in Mauritius and the Indian Ocean region.

MCCI pioneered institutional arbitration in Mauritius by setting up the MCCI Permanent Court of Arbitration in 1996, which was rebranded as MARC in 2012, and constantly strives to spearhead developments in arbitration and other methods of alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) in Mauritius and the Indian Ocean region. MARC firmly believes that strengthening best practices in the field of dispute resolution will promote cross-border trade and investment by making underlying transactions more secure and predictable.

MARC provides neutral, rapid, efficient, flexible and confidential means of resolving disputes through mediation or arbitration as alternatives to litigation before state courts. It also offers excellent hearing and meeting room facilities and services at its offices in Port Louis, Mauritius.
