According to UNCITRAL’s website, São Tomé and Príncipe has deposited its instrument of accession to the New York Convention. It will enter into force for this country on 18 February 2013 (see http://www.unis.unvienna.org/unis/pressrels/2012/unisl178.html).
We would be pleased to receive more information about the procedure that led the Government to take this decision. In addition, we would welcome general comments about the impact of this accession on commercial transactions involving São Tomean parties.
