On 20 May 2016, on the occasion of the 95th session of its Governing Council, and as part of UNIDROIT's 90th Anniversary Celebration Series, UNIDROIT hosted a Conference on "United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contract: Contrast and Convergence". The Conference addressed the two instruments’ approaches on the four main topics of Interpretation and gap filling, Contract validity, Good faith, and Ethical standards, and produced very stimulating discussions from the audience composed of members of the UNIDROIT Governing Council and the CISG Advisory Council.
