Insolvency academics from the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School played host recently to a delegation from Zimbabwe accompanied by World Bank staff working on a project in that country. 

The purpose of the visit was to gather information for a study feeding into the proposed law reform process in Zimbabwe, in which Professor David Burdette, Director of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law, is involved. 

Before coming to Nottingham, the delegation also travelled to London, where they met practitioners, judges and policy makers in visits to INSOL International, the Courts and the Insolvency Service.

The Zimbabwe delegation included Mrs Mabel Msika (Director of Policy at the Ministry of Justice of Zimbabwe), Mr T Hodzi (Deputy Attorney General of Zimbabwe), Mr Eldard Mutasa (Master of the High Court of Zimbabwe), Mr J Zowa (Head of the Law Development Commission of Zimbabwe) and Mr Reggie Saruchera (Private Practitioner, Grant Thornton Camelsa). 

Accompanying them from the World Bank were Mr Crispen Mauta Mawadza (Finance and Private Sector Development Specialist), Mr Kobina Egyir Daniel (Senior Operations Officer), Ms Olena Koltko (Private Sector Development Specialist) and Ms Samantha Elysia Pettinato (Consultant, World Bank).

Topics for discussion during the day-long seminar included insolvency practitioner regulation, out of court and non-insolvency alternatives as well as the law reform process itself and the special needs of economies in transition. 

In attendance to assist the visitors were Professors David Burdette, Rebecca Parry, Adrian Walters and Paul Omar as well as Dr Alexandra Kastrinou and Mrs Jenny Gant, all members of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law. The discussions were fruitful and provided much for the delegation to consider for the future progress of the law reforms in Zimbabwe.
