Bangladesh is one of the leading manufacturers of garments, pharmaceutical and leather goods. The volume of international trade in different parts of the world is increasing due to the expansion of trade. As trade volume grows, so does the number of cross-border disputes and claims at the same time. The disputes usually concern international trade and commerce involving loss of cargo, defective delivery of cargo, default in payment etc. Besides, large numbers of cross-border disputes are also taking place in relation to the payment, investment, shipping. In the absence of any arbitration clause, the only recourse available is to rely on the conflict of laws principle and select appropriate forums where the matter can be brought before the Court of law. Forum shopping is, historically, challenging work as contesting parties rarely reach an agreement on a forum
