LEX Africa is proud to announce the signature of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with The Global Chinese-Speaking Lawyers’ Association, an association of over 30 000 Chinese speaking lawyers. The parties wish to exchange information and work on joint projects to assist and advise Chinese firms investing and trading in Africa.
The MOU was signed in Kenya by Mr Ambrose Lam, the President of the Association, and Mr Fred Ojiambo, the senior partner of Kenyan LEX Africa member, Kaplan & Stratton, during the visit of a Chinese trade delegation of about 70 Chinese firms. The signing ceremony was attended by about 300 people, including the Chinese Vice Chairman for the Promotion of International Trade, the Vice Mayor of Shenzhen, the Chairman of the Chinese Council for the Promotion of Trade and the Chairman of the Kenyan National Chamber of Commerce.
“We are delighted by the MOU. Chinese investors are very important in Africa and LEX Africa members have advised and assisted many Chinese clients in the past. We look forward to working closely with the Association in future” says Pieter Steyn, the Chairman of LEX Africa.
