Although the Singapore Convention aims to create a system of expeditious and efficient enforcement, the right to enforce an arbitral award is not absolute. Article 5 sets out six reasons why a competent enforcement authority may refuse to execute an agreement: if the breach of the settlement agreement itself leads to a more national issue, the district court has an independent basis for substantive jurisdiction.46 The courts have the power to enforce settlements between the parties in cases pending before them.24 A settlement agreement, which provides that in the event of an infringement, the plaintiff could « re-enter the action », which does not preserve the jurisdiction of the court after the dismissal.29 The court has the power to decide the disputed questions of fact related to the settlement, e.B. whether there has been a meeting of the chiefs, whether the agreement has been approved, or whether there are grounds for resignation.61 The essential question is whether the parties have reached an agreement on all material conditions. This topic is inherently specific to the facts, but certain conditions, such as good/service and price, must be agreed. However, even a term such as price does not need to be expressly stated. Instead, the parties could agree on a mechanism to determine what the price will be. The courts have concluded that such provisions would be sufficiently secure to establish an enforceable contract, provided that all other essential provisions were sufficiently certain. The Singapore Agreement applies to negotiated international settlement agreements. The most fundamental question, therefore, is how « international » agreements are defined. According to Article 1, Section 1, an agreement is international if the parties have their offices (1) in different States or (2) in the same State, but the object or obligations of the agreement are located in different States. The term « place of business » does not always mean the head office of the company. Instead, Article 2 provides that if a company has more than one office, the establishment is in the State that « has the closest relationship with the dispute resolved by the settlement agreement. » There are also general exclusions, including consumer, family and work settlements, as well as agreements reached through a court or arbitration.
