The Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa (OHADA) has 16 current member countries. Its principal aim is to establish a modern and accessible system of harmonized business law in Africa - directly applicable in all the member States and which supersedes the previous national legislation on the subject concerned. While influenced to a certain extent by French law, its ambition is to create a truly African system, which will lay down a strong foundation for long-term development on the African continent by providing a secure legal environment for investment and trade. This work gives a general presentation of the seven Uniform Acts that have been issued to date concerning, respectively, general commercial law, corporate law, bankruptcy, securities, accounting, recovery and enforcement procedures, and arbitration. It is intended as a practical guide, which outlines the advantages that this new body of law presents in creating a more secure climate for investment, but which is realistic about any problems that may nevertheless arise.

Legal harmonization is an essential step to encouraging foreign investment in Africa and the development of sustainable pan-African trade. Now in a fully updated 2nd edition, Business Law in Africa explains the new system of law, now being developed and promoted by the Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa. OHADA's essential aim is to promote economic integration and development by creating a secure legal framework for the conduct of business in Africa. In order to achieve this aim, OHADA has enacted a number of laws, known as Uniform Acts, on various aspects of business law including commercial and company laws, insolvency, securities and arbitration. These Uniform Acts are directly applicable throughout OHADA's member states and the intention is to recruit further members and to spread the principles of OHADA across Africa. This authoritative book offers an overview of the aims and achievements of the OHADA system and explains in depth the legislation that has been issued to date.
