Samaa Haridi to Serve as a Technical Review Committee Member for Africa Arbitration Academy Model Bilateral Investment Treaty

New York Trial and Global Disputes partner Samaa Haridi served as a Technical Review Committee member for the Model Bilateral Investment Treaty for African States 2022, which has just been launched by the Africa Arbitration Academy. The AAA Model BIT sets out the investment policy framework for the promotion of foreign direct investments in Africa and provides a unique approach to balancing the relationship between investment promotion and sustainable development. The Model BIT has been designed as a comprehensive document comprised of uniform texts which African States may adopt as a basis for developing their specific model investment treaties, and also for non-African States when seeking to negotiate and conclude BITs with African States.
