BAHRAIN is set to join the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).
The Shura Council approved the move yesterday after MPs gave the go-ahead last month.
A bill paving the way for the convention will now be ratified by His Majesty King Hamad before Foreign Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa officially signs the UN document.
The treaty aims to reduce obstacles to international trade and includes rules governing the rights and obligations of parties to international sales contracts.
It is a project of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law.
Meanwhile, the Council approved a Royal Decree that carries amendments to the setting up and formation of the Constitutional Court.
