Legal Experts Plan Talks to Boost Legal Support for Commerce in West and Central Africa

- ALSF-PALU: Partnering to build a foundation for better commercial contracts in the extractive resource industry and infrastructure in Africa

Lawyers from central and west Africa are to meet in Cameroon next week to discuss ways to improve legal support for doing business in the two regions.
The African Legal Support Facility (ALSF), a body hosted by AfDB in Tunis, and the Pan African Lawyers Union, the umbrella body for African lawyers and law societies, are organising a seminar in the capital, Yaounde, from 12 to 14 March.
Some 60 to 70 delegates from 23 countries will gather to discuss better legal support relating to areas such as international commercial negotiations, dispute resolution and vulture fund legislation.
ALSF director, Stephen Karangizi commented: “In the current knowledge-driven African economies, our governments will largely rely on skilled lawyers to work with ALSF to efficiently negotiate complex commercial agreements and creditors’ litigations.”
The seminar will build on similar meetings held earlier in the year covering the eastern, southern and northern African regions.
