Korean parties are a top foreign user of SIAC. As an overseas liaison office, the SIAC Seoul Office serves to promote and develop international arbitration in South Korea through marketing and training activities. The role and functions of the SIAC Seoul Office are as follows:

• to facilitate the dissemination of information to Korean parties on the latest developments in the law and practice of international arbitration;

• to deepen and broaden SIAC's engagement with key stakeholders in the international arbitration community in South Korea;

• to provide practical information to lawyers and corporate users on the use of SIAC arbitration as a dispute resolution option; and
