A “Mediation Center” will be created for members of the Business Chamber. Mediation is an alternative means of dispute resolution. Its role in business relations is special, both in terms of confidentiality protection and quick, effective problem solving. If the relationship between the parties is so tense that confrontation of positions is inevitable and mutual accusations arise, it is advisable to refer the dispute to mediation.
The mediator will help the parties find a mutually acceptable solution that will help resolve the dispute by mutual agreement without undue expenses. Voluntariness, confidentiality, impartiality, and flexibility are the principles of mediation. The center will function according to the Law of Georgia on Mediation.
For the implementation of all abovementioned, the center will be staffed with qualified mediators, lawyers, and financial specialists to identify existing dispute issues thoroughly. The Business Chamber will cooperate with the Mediators Association of Georgia by organizing training, workshops, and round table meetings to increase the center’s efficiency.
