The MAC Protocol: Global Impact and Potential Benefits for Australia
UNCCA is proud to promote the upcoming MAC Protocol workshop – organised and carried out in partnership with the International Law Committee of the ACT Law Society and the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT).
The event is scheduled for Wednesday 29 August at 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the ACT Law Society, 1 Farrell Place, Canberra. The event presents the opportunity for attendees to participate in a consultation workshop on the Protocol to the Cape Town Convention on matters specific to Agricultural, Construction and Mining Equipment (the MAC Protocol).
The MAC Protocol is an international treaty currently under negotiation that will increase global productivity in the mining, agriculture and construction sectors. The treaty will provide an international legal framework for the financing of MAC equipment. Cheaper financing and access to modern MAC equipment will allow parties involved in the mining, agriculture and construction sectors to optimise their productivity and profitability.
This event will bring together representatives from UNIDROIT, domestic legal experts in secured transactions law, government, the private sector, civil society representatives and academia to discuss the legal and economic impact of the MAC Protocol and its potential benefits for Australia.
Interested parties may register directly with the ACT Law Society here. Registrations close Friday 24 August.
