Thirteen years ago, in July 1998, the South African Law Commission (the 'SALC') published a report in which it examined the South African Arbitration Act 42 of 1965 ('the Arbitration Act'). The SALC found that the Arbitration Act was defective for the purpose of international arbitration. In this regard it referred to the fact that upon South Africa's re-emergence in 1994 after economic isolation for many decades, many South African laws, including those pertaining to international trade and investments, were considered outdated (see SALC Project 94 on Arbitration: An International Arbitration Act for South Africa (1998), available at http://www.justice.gov.za/ salrc/reports/r_prj94_july1998.pdf (accessed 1 Apr 2011) in par 1.1).
