From the Regional Centre:
The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) was established by the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2205 (XXI) of 17 December 1966 with the mandate to remove legal obstacles to international trade by progressively modernizing and harmonizing trade law. The Commission has since come to be the core legal body of the United Nations system in the field of international trade law. To celebrate this historical resolution, the UNCITRAL Regional Centre for Asia and the Pacific (UNCITRAL-RCAP) established the UNCITRAL Asia Pacific Day in 2014.
This year, six reputable universities across the region will join us in celebrating UNCITRAL’s 50th anniversary and exploring new directions in cross-border commerce. The programme for the 2016 UNCITRAL Asia Pacific Day has been attached for your reference.
Proposals for the 2017 UNCITRAL Asia Pacific Day can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
