2. UNCITRAL - 50th anniversary
Currently the 50th session of the UNCITRAL is held at the Vienna International Centre in Vienna.  

Celebrating its 50th anniversary and exploring new directions in cross-border commerce UNCITRAL hosted a three day Congress titled “Modernizing International Trade Law to Support Innovation and Sustainable Development”. In the courts of the Congress outstanding experts discussed among others developments in the settlement of commercial disputes, possible reforms of investor-state dispute settlement and the needs for an international framework on arbitration.

On 5 July 2017 Arb|Aut – together with the City of Vienna and the Vienna International Arbitral Centre (VIAC) – hosted a Cocktail reception to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of UNICTRAL. Professor Emmanuel Gaillard and Professor George Bermann presented the “The UNCITRAL Secretariat Guide on the New York Convention”.
