The Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa (OHADA) is working toward a unified system of business law in order to encourage foreign investment in, and commerce with, Africa. OHADA has currently 16 member countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Cormoros, Congo, Ivory Coast, Gambon, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Mali, Niger, Senegal, and Togo. Ghana and Nigeria are interested in membership, though not yet committed. This book presents the seven Uniform Acts that have been issued by OHADA to date concerning general commercial law, corporate law, bankruptcy, securities, accounting, recovery and enforcement procedures, and arbitration. It is intended as a practical guide, outlining the advantages that this new body of law presents in creating a more secure climate for investment, but realistic about any problems that may nevertheless arise. Essential reference for legal and business development executives in major global companies, international law firms, accountants and management consultants, students of international business law; international government agencies; Africa and African business people, and government officers in OHADA countries and their trading partners.
