About the Seminar

ICFAI Law School, Hyderabad is organising a two day National Seminar on International Trade and Investment Law on 10th and 11th January 2020.

Trading activity and investments with other countries is a phenomenon of survival. It is evidenced by the history of International trade which reveals the survival of the fittest against the odds such as natural disasters, war, economic crisis, undemocratic governance, etc.

Many times, the unequal level fields in trading have imbalanced the global economies resulting in dominant and dormant trade and business regime.

The trade platforms with unequal resources and opportunities are shadowed by the superpowers involved in trade-wars throwing the developing and underdeveloped nations into further economic crisis.

International Trade Law is dynamic, addressing various issues in this direction to showcase futuristic and full-fledged platforms for efficient trade. But, as we progress it appears to be a myth under the present fast-changing business and trade environment. International trade is a pivotal instrument for bringing nations together to resolve the issues relating to poverty, health and safe and secure living.

So the whole concept/theme of the conference is to identify those overlapping issues, the interplay between trade and investments, the different needs of a particular region and the effectiveness of the dispute resolution mechanism in settling the issues.

  1. Sustainable Economic Development & Foreign investments
  2. World Economics and Ease of Doing Business
