Mr. Filpi emphasized the importance of Kuwait keeping pace with international commercial law standards and the challenges for legislators supporting economic growth in a knowledge based economy. Mr. Filpi provided insights into lessons learned in the Arabian Peninsula and globally for legislative drafters attempting to regulate a knowledge based economy effectively. Since 2004 in the Arabian Peninsula, CLDP has advocated for legislative efforts to modernize commercial law and trained legal stakeholders in international commercial law best practices.
