"In fact, Sural is part of a group of substantial companies under common control with a strong international reputation for the manufacture of sophisticated aluminum products and significant proprietary technology. Rarely do such companies permit a member to shirk its just debts to legitimate creditors. GORTT was obviously comfortable contracting with Sural on that basis and without seeking financial guarantees from its parent or other members of the Sural Group of companies."
"29. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
29.5... where any officer notifies the Parties that the dispute has not been resolved by referral to such officers or otherwise by agreement between the Parties, such dispute shall be referred to arbitration, to be conducted in Miami, Florida.

29.9 The costs and fees of arbitration shall be determined in the sole discretion of the arbitration tribunal and may be assessed or apportioned to either or both of the Parties in the award.
30 GOVERNING LAW
30.1 This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago and subject to Clause 29, the Parties hereto submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Trinidad and Tobago courts in respect of any dispute or matter arising out of or in connection with this Agreement."
"This ‘seat’ is in most cases sufficiently indicated by the country chosen as the place of the arbitration. For such a choice of place not to be given effect as a choice of seat, there will need to be clear evidence that the parties (or the arbitrators if so authorised by the parties) agreed to choose another seat for the arbitration; and that such a choice will be effective to endow the courts of that country with jurisdiction to supervise and support the arbitration."
