CMD National Insurance Company Mr K.Sanath Kumar while releasing the booklet mentioned that the Arbitration Hub being set up by Hidco would attract re-insurance business and that therefore the Finance Hub would get synergised if steps are taken to give some tax benefits for drawing international reinsurance business.
Partner of Khaitan & Co Mr Raj Panchmatia said that careful drafting of the rules, in consultation with national and international experts, could make Kolkata a great Hub because of its locational advantage vis-a-vis South East Asia.
Partner of Fox and Mandal Mr Debanjan Mandal told that 30% of Singapore's arbitrations were between Indian companies. Off stage, he agreed to volunteer to help draft the rules.
