The Conference will deal on a comparative basis with the sales law in the region of the Caucasus and Central Asia, with particular accent on regulation of international sales contracts. Sales law of all countries besides Georgia base on the CIS Model Civil Code. In the recent 20 years the sales laws of the countries of the region were amended many times. The reforms were strongly influenced by international legal frameworks and foreign, in particular German, legislation. But these reforms were not harmonized between each other. Today we have quite different legal framework for the sales law. As the result the countries of the region approaching step-by-step to the international trends, are drifting more and more from each other. The Conference is targeting to shed light to this interesting development and compare it to the developments in the EU, in particular to establishment of the Common European Sales law.
