27 FEBRUARY 2018
MALTA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
This high level technical half day Colloquium on the need for an international instrument on foreign judicial sales of ships and their recognition, is being co-hosted by the Government of Malta through the Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, the Comité Maritime International and the Malta Maritime Law Association.
It is in response to the wishes of UNCITRAL that there be an informative technical meeting to enable stakeholders including different jurisdictions, shipowners, and financiers to join forces and discuss the importance of having an international instrument which would introduce a substantial degree of stability and uniformity in an important aspect of maritime trade particularly in economically challenging times.
The Colloquium will be addressed and attended by representatives of UNCITRAL, Governments, financiers, shipowners and jurisdictions which offer robust solutions in these difficult circumstances.
