The BRI is a development strategy to strengthen infrastructure, trade, and investment links between China and some 65 other countries both over land (Belt) and sea (Road). A global cross-border project; the BRI will be navigating the ever-changing legal landscapes of the different countries involved, which will inevitably give rise to legal issues and disputes. The MCBMC was set up as a cross border dispute resolution body in anticipation of these legal issues and disputes.
The officer bearers of the MCBMC consist of two (2) co-chairmen and two (2) co-secretary-generals, supported by the MCBMC Secretariats, based both in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and in Beijing, People’s Republic of China.
