The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods Act ("CISG") is arguably one of the most successful treaties of the UN with 96 countries, as of the date of this publication, who have ratified the CISG. In spite of this success, it is common to hear from parties that they purposely exclude the CISG from their international sale of goods contracts. In spite of this alleged common knowledge, there are a significant number of cases worldwide where the governing law is the CISG. Please join our second panel of the GIA: Hong Kong Legal Week Edition, who will discuss the good and the bad of the CISG from all perspectives: from the party itself, external legal counsel, and experts on the topic of the CISG. This panel will give a practical perspective of whether or not parties should include the CISG.
