Due to the current public health challenges and the uncertainties involved, the conference shall be deferred until the latter half of the year.  

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”) will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2020 (“CISG@40”). It provides a uniform text of law for international sales of goods and currently has 93 Contracting States from diverse legal traditions and levels of economic development, which together represent over two-thirds of the global economy. The conference, co-organised by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, the Department of Justice of Hong Kong and the Asian Academy of International Law, will provide a timely opportunity for all involved in cross-boundary sales of goods to share insights and exchange views on the impact of the CISG on global trade.
