On July 27, 2018, NatLaw’s Executive Director, Dr. Marek Dubovec, delivered a lecture on secured transactions reforms in Bangladesh and Pakistan at the Secured Transactions Law in Asia Symposium. The symposium was organized by the NUS Faculty of Law and the Harris Manchester College Commercial Law Centre of Oxford University, and was held at the National University of Singapore (NUS) from July 26-27, 2018. The symposium convened Asian and international experts to understand and assess the state of secured transactions law in the region by in-depth studies of selected Asian jurisdictions, examination of the law reform experience in developed jurisdictions and internationally, and discussion of general issues such as the connection between secured transactions and insolvency. Speakers at the symposium were drawn from both the public and private sectors, as well as from academia and multilateral entities. Dr. Dubovec’s presentation focused on the reforms to the secured credit frameworks of Bangladesh and Pakistan, highlighting their respective challenges, approaches, qualities, and deficiencies.
