International Colloquium on Applicable Law in Insolvency Proceedings

15 May 2020

At its fifty-second session, in 2019, UNCITRAL considered a proposal from the European Union on applicable law in insolvency proceedings (see A/CN.9/995).

“破产法领域的适用法”国际学术研讨会

15 May 2020

联合国国际贸易法委员会2019年第五十二届委员会审议了欧盟关于《破产程序中的适用法》的提案(见A/CN.9/995)。委员会要求秘书处与其他有关国际组织合作举办一次研讨会,旨在就未来可能针对这一专题开展的工作提出具体建议,供委员会2020年第五十三届会议审议。

贸易法委员会同意这一专题的重要性,该专题补充了贸易法委员会在破产法领域,特别是在跨境破产领域已经开展的重要工作。然而,委员会也注意到这一专题潜在的复杂性,需要国际私法各个领域的高水平专业知识,以及在合同、财产、公司、证券和银行业等贸易法委员会近期未涉及的法律领域的法律选择(见A/74/17,第206段)。因此,委员会一致认为,必须仔细界定可以开展的工作范围和性质。

“破产法领域的适用法”国际学术研讨会将与海牙国际私法会议合作,于2020年5月15日在纽约举行。

研讨会的报告将提交委员会第五十三届会议(2020年7月,纽约)审议,并在在贸易法委员会网站上公布。
