The digital trade landscape is rapidly evolving, driven by the need for efficiency, economic benefits, and global collaboration.

This event aims to shed light on the legal developments in digital trade, with a particular focus on the UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Transferable Records (MLETR) and the UNCITRAL Model Law on the Use and Cross-Border Recognition of Identity Management and Trust Services (MLIT). The UNCITRAL Model Laws serve as a global framework that provides a foundation for bilateral agreements and other advancements made by countries in the realm of digital trade.

The primary objective of this event is to provide a comprehensive overview of the legal progress in digital trade, highlighting the benefits derived from the adoption and implementation of the UNCITRAL Model Laws. By examining the recent advancements made in the adoption of the MLETR and the MLIT, along with related legislations, the event will explore how countries have utilised this framework to enhance the legal environment for digital trade and the opportunities in the future.

Furthermore, the event will delve into the initiatives taken by different countries, including the establishment of bilateral partnerships, to further advance digital trade. Participants will gain valuable insights into how these bilateral agreements and other initiatives enhance the legal environment for digital trade, fostering innovation and facilitating cross-border business interactions.
