Jan Adriaanse takes part in African Round Table 2014

On 17 and 18 October 2014, the annual African Roundtable will take place in Kampala, Uganda, organised by INSOL International. This year’s theme is ‘Jobs in Africa: how insolvency regimes impact economic growth’. On October 18th a Work-Out Simulation will be given by Leiden Law School Professor Jan Adriaanse. 


During the workshop a business rescue simulation game will be played by participants based on a real-life situation. More generally, the 2014 African Round Table will explore how insolvency reform can contribute to economic development by saving valuable business and thereby preserving jobs, encouraging entrepreneurship through more efficient liquidation proceedings and promoting foreign investment through procedural coordination with other jurisdictions.
