Training Workshop on Contracts

Palestinian shippers, both importers and exporters, usually have contracts with different parties such as other international importers and exporters, service suppliers, customers, banks, insurance companies, and consumers. These shippers are increasingly involved in the task of negotiating and signing contracts, therefore their lack of basic contract skills would have substantial consequences, including excessive legal costs, delays, and unacceptable risks.

Accordingly, in order to provide Palestinian Business community with the full understanding of the "best practices" of negotiating, whether they are familiar with negotiating a major trade agreement or settling a misunderstanding with a colleague, the PSC in cooperation with the United Nations Conference on Trade & Development “UNCTAD” and Ministry of National Economy (MNE) organized on September 23rd the first legal workshop with the aim of upgrading the business capacities of the Palestinian private sector, thereby equipping them with in-depth knowledge and expertise related to the legal and commercial aspects of contracts. The practical workshop was realized through a combination of introductory lectures, class discussions and team participation.

The workshop was attended by 48 representatives from Public Sector Institutions, Private sector companies from importers and exporters, Freight Forwarders and Custom Clearing Agencies, and Financial Institutions, in addition to Lawyers and legal advisers specialized on International Trade Law.
