On 12-13 February 2020 UNIDROIT participated in the third Conference on International Coordination of Secured Transaction Law Reforms: Advancing Reforms Globally and in Latin America Through Enhanced Coordination in Cartagena, Colombia.
Co-sponsored by NatLaw, the International Insolvency Institute, the hosting institution Universidad de los Andes, and Universidad Externado of Colombia, the Conference brought together representatives from UNCITRAL, UNIDROIT, OAS, EBRD, the World Bank, IFC and Nat Law as well as leading academics to advance the discussions of the prior two conferences (9-10 February 2017 at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and 16-17 October at Universidad Carlos III in Madrid). During the Conference, UNIDROIT Secretary-General Ignacio Tirado presented on two panels: one, chaired by Marek Dubovec, on examining the coordination of International Standard Setting Bodies in the Development of International Standards and Instrument, and the other, chaired by Andres F. Martinez (World Bank Group), addressing the coordination between insolvency and secured transactions as well as coordination between international standard setting bodies on the development of principles and texts on insolvency.
