He emphasised the importance of training IPs on this emerging issue in a timely manner.

The session examined and discussed the practical challenges which arise in matters dealing with aspects of cross border insolvency. The speakers provided an overview of the framework under the Model Law and discussed the legal mechanisms available in UK and USA. The session included a discussion on the Report of the Insolvency Law Committee and particularly the draft framework prepared on the lines of the Model Law. This ‘Train the Trainer’ session focused on capacity building and development of the insolvency framework wherein the nominated Insolvency Professionals were provided with in-depth practical training by way of case studies related to cross-border insolvency.

Forty-five Insolvency professionals were nominated by their respective Insolvency Professional Agencies, for participation in the programme. The programme envisages a set of a few more similar sessions on emerging issues in the insolvency landscape in future.
