This book contemplates the means by which the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) might continue to grow in terms of its content and reach into the future. It considers the opportunities, challenges and problems in expanding the CISG into new geographic and conceptual areas of application, as well as deepening its existing fields of application.

In relation to future geographical expansion, chapters explore the positions in the United Kingdom, which is yet to join the CISG, as well as the situations in newcomers to the CISG, Brazil and Vietnam, and the special challenges in Hong Kong and the Philippines.

Also covered are special directions in which the content of the CISG’s substantive reach might be expanded or further developed. Various chapters discuss the extent to which the CISG should - or should not - potentially deal with issues relating to commodity sales, conformity to public regulations relating to product standards, and limitation periods.

This volume is sure to provide food for thought for anyone advising on or interested in international commercial transactions, and is a valuable addition to the collections of academics and practitioners alike.
