Ukraine: Workshop III on the Adjudication of Commercial Disputes

November 13, 2018 - November 14, 2018

CLDP, in coordination with the U.S. Federal Trade Center and in cooperation with the High Council of Justice, the Supreme Court of Ukraine and the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine held the Workshop on the Adjudication of Commercial Disputes. The workshop took place in Kyiv, Ukraine, on November 13-14, 2018, and gathered Ukrainian judges, government officials, lawyers, as well as representatives of the U.S. judiciary and legal community.

Although Ukraine has advanced significantly in the ongoing reforms of its competition laws and regulations, significant challenges remain. These challenges include efficient and effective adjudication of those commercial disputes, which focus on competition law issues, including the issues of abuse of dominant economic position. Thus, the Ukrainian judiciary would greatly benefit from shared best international practices and experiences in the application of the relevant substantive and procedural provisions in situations similar to those existing in Ukraine. 

The workshop will further increase the capacity of the Ukrainian judiciary to adjudicate commercial disputes on competition law. In turn, this will lead to better trade and investment opportunities in Ukraine. 

CLDP in Action

October 23, 2019 - October 24, 2019

On October 23-24 in Tunis, Tunisia, CLDP held a workshop to identify potential changes to Tunisian law that would encourage increased cross-border eCommerce transactions for both exports and imports. Over 40 representatives from several government ministries, the private sector, and the NGO community discussed potential amendments to Tunisia’s eCommerce law, customs procedures, central bank currency and payment rules, and other matters.  The participants offered sets of informal recommendations for further action.

ECommerce in Tunisia has not reached its full potential, although there are black market eCommerce websites. Legal changes could help Tunisian SMEs and individuals reach new markets, while also providing opportunities for US sellers.
