Elizabeth Stong at 10th Anniversary Africa Round Table on Insolvency Reform 2019
Elizabeth S. Stong of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Eastern District of New York participated in a panel on comparative judicial perspectives at The 2019 Africa Round Table (ART) on insolvency reform. The event, held on November 21-22, was hosted by INSOL International and World Bank Group. The theme for this year’s event was “Celebrating a decade of insolvency reform in Africa and anticipating what lies ahead.”
Since the introduction of the Africa Round Table initiative in 2010, the focus has been on introducing delegates across the continent to the various insolvency and restructuring tools that are available in an insolvency scenario, with the emphasis on encouraging and supporting insolvency reform. The themes of the events have ranged from value preservation to insolvency frameworks for micro, small and medium enterprises to examining how to encourage more effective implementation of insolvency regimes. The focus, however, remains on developing professional ties with the goal of improving insolvency and restructuring regimes across the African continent.
