(1) It is the policy of the Legislative Assembly to encourage the use of arbitration and conciliation to resolve disputes arising out of international relationships and to assure access to the courts of this state for legal proceedings ancillary to or otherwise in aid of such arbitration and conciliation and to encourage the participation and use of Oregon facilities and resources to carry out the purposes of ORS 36.450 to 36.558.

(2) Any person may enter into a written agreement to arbitrate or conciliate any existing dispute or any dispute arising thereafter between that person and another.
