Unknown to many, Winnie was a key member of an international team of experts from Taiwan, Australia and Singapore (2012-2016) which initiated a project and presented a draft convention and submission to the United Nations which culminated in the “UN Convention on International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation” (Singapore Convention 2019).
Winnie’s academic background and her experience at the CAA launched her into the practice of international arbitration.
