About this event

The Convention on the Enforcement and Recognition of Foreign Arbitral Awards (New York Convention) is one of the most successful treaties in the area of commercial law and has served as a model for subsequent international legislative texts. ACICA invites you to celebrate with it the 60th anniversary of this important Convention.
