2023 CISG Workshop:
The CISG vs. Contract Law in Hong Kong
On 29 September 2022, the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong SAR passed the Sale of Goods (United Nations Convention) Ordinance (Cap. 641) (Ordinance) and accordingly the CISG came officially into effect in Hong Kong on 1 December 2022.
There are differences between the CISG and relevant existing Hong Kong contract law in a number of important aspects. The workshop intends to provide the participants with a focused and in-depth discussion on the following aspects:
(1) when the CISG applies;
(2) interplay between the CISG and domestic law;
(3) interpreting the CISG;
(4) features in legal concepts of contractual law on certain important areas such as formation of contract and interpretation of contract; and
(5) approaching breaches.
