The delegation will also meet with stakeholders in commercial disputes such as U.S. bankruptcy judges, lawyers for bankruptcy litigants, U.S. trustees, and claims agents. Participants will learn the judge’s role in referring commercial cases to alternative means of dispute resolution such as arbitration and mediation. In recent years, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have developed new commercial laws including insolvency laws to prepare themselves for transformation to knowledge-based economies that attract foreign investment and encourage innovation and entrepreneurship.
