SUMMARY REPORT OF THE FIRST AFRICAN CONFERENCE ON INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL LAW HELD IN DOUALA, MERIDIEN HOTEL FROM 13-14 JANUARY 2011
The First African Conference on International Commercial Law took place from the 13-14 January 2011 at the Meridien Hotel, Douala. During the two-day event, over 150 delegates discussed global legal standards in the fields of arbitration, international sales of goods and general contract law, such as those prepared by UNCITRAL and UNIDROIT, with a view to strengthening the framework for international trade law in Africa. The efforts of OHADA - the Organisation for the Harmonisation of Business Law in Africa - a body which harmonises business laws in 16 Francophone countries (the Democratic Republic of Congo is in the process of joining) was part of the focus. The conference also offered to young researchers an opportunity to participate, thereby laying the cornerstone for future communication and cooperation among the young generations of jurists. A total of eight young researchers presented
papers on various areas of commercial law.
