The following day the Implementation Group had a constructive meeting conducted by its Chair, Ms Klara Rakhmetova (Kazakhstan). The group discussed the latest statistics on ECT investment arbitration cases and the first draft of a Model Investment Dispute Prevention and Management Protocol prepared with the support of several government officials and the IMI Investor-State Mediation Task Force. The Model Protocol could be voluntarily used as a reference or guide by those states who do not have one already in place (or by those who want to update/extend the one they already have). In doing so, they could adapt the Model Protocol to their particular needs and circumstances. Therefore, the Model Protocol contains several options that could be considered by each state. The Secretariat will now continue consultations with government officials dealing with investment disputes and relevant international institutions (ICSID, ICC, SCC, PCA, UNCITRAL) while also preparing an explanatory note to further facilitate the use of the Model Protocol. The Secretariat also informed about the successful completion of the 2nd edition of the investment mediator training in Paris in cooperation with ICSID, CEDR and IMI.
