... it is in line with international business practices and it allows the parties the autonomy to determine what is in their best interest and how they wish to have it manifested.

President of the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce, Larry Watson

... it takes less time and it's more efficient than the normal court systems.


State Minister in the Ministry of National Security, Pearnel Charles Jr

... it provides a better way to deal with disputes and creates a better environment for investment.


Opposition Spokesman on Industry, Investment and Commerce, Anthony Hylton

... it is a major tool for development.
