Should Pakistan Adopt the Convention for the International Sale of Goods?
This paper demonstrates that Pakistani Sale of Goods laws are outdated as they have not been modernised since the 1930s. This paper will only look at buyer’s remedies under the Sale of Goods Act and compare the remedies available under the International Convention for the Sale of Goods (CISG) with the ones currently available in Pakistan and, where applicable, the sub-continent. This paper concludes that Pakistan would benefit from a ratification of the CISG as it would enable the country to take advantage of increased attention by China on its resources and economic opportunities.
