The meeting was opened by the Republic of Congo’s Justice Minister Pierre Mabiala, who is also the president of OHADA ministerial council.
Mabiala urged the experts to translate decisions taken by the presidents into concrete actions.
During the meeting, the experts will examine, among other issues, the annual harmonization program, the current uniform acts and the state of application of OHADA laws in member states.
The two-day meeting will pave way for the OHADA ministerial council session that will be held in the Republic of Congo capital between June 16 and 17.
OHADA is a system of business laws and implementing institutions adopted by 16 Central and West African countries. It is open to all African Union member states, and has its permanent secretariat in Yaounde, Cameroon.
The OHADA treaty, which came into force in September 1995, is aimed at guaranteeing legal security among member states, thus promoting investments by both locals and foreigners. Enditem
