Nowadays, arbitration is required in the world of international trade as the normal mode of dispute settlement. Indeed, the development of the business world and the intensification of global trade have contributed to the emergence of several conflicts between international traders, these conflicts are amplified with different cultures, mentalities and especially international legislation. The arbitration was then the best remedy since it is the justice that best suits the needs of traders. The private mode of dispute settlement offers them a certain serenity, to the extent that it has significant advantages. Arbitration is in fact a flexible way, confidential, fast and reasonably expensive. In addition, the technical qualifications of arbitrators and their specific vision of litigation are two factors that ensure the warring parties a satisfactory solution to the disagreement, leaving the door open to continuing business relationships.
