Legal collaboration MOU signed

The Government today signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT).   The MOU was signed by Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng and UNIDROIT President Prof Maria Chiara Malaguti at a virtual signing ceremony.   It focuses on the administrative arrangements for collaboration relating to private international law and international commercial law.   This is the second MOU concluded between the Department of Justice and UNIDROIT, following the signing of the first one in May 2021, which put in place the arrangements for seconding Hong Kong legal professionals to the UNIDROIT Secretariat.   Ms Cheng said in her opening remarks that the signing of the joint declaration of intent opened a new chapter in the close co-operation between the two parties, adding that it also laid the foundation for enhanced collaboration in the field of private international law.   She also announced that, under the MOU, the department and UNIDROIT will be jointly launching the inaugural Asia-Pacific Private International Law Summit in the city this November, as one of the flagship events of Hong Kong Legal Week 2022.

The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
