The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016, enacted and being implemented by India has been hailed as one of the important structural reforms in the financial sector since the country's independence. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (IBBI) is the statutory regulator that writes regulations for various processes under the Code and regulates the newly emerged Insolvency Professionals under the law. IBBI also acts as the Authority to register and conduct valuation examination of the registered valuers in India under the Companies Act, 2013. 

IBBI, in association with Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy (Vidhi), a New Delhi based think-tank set up by Oxford Law alumni, is organising a Conference on the theme, "Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016: Impact on Markets and the Economy" on December 16, 2019 at the  India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi. Vidhi has a dedicated vertical aimed at ushering reforms in the financial sector, with a focus on insolvency, corporate affairs and banking regulation.

It is expected that the Conference would catalyse discussions on the new law’s interrelationship with India’s economy in general and financial markets in particular. 

The Faculty of Law and the Commercial Law Centre, Harris Manchester College, at the University of Oxford are pleased to partner with IBBI and Vidhi for this Conference. Dr. Kristin van Zwieten, Clifford Chance Associate Professor of Law and Finance at the Faculty and Director of the Commercial Law Centre will be delivering the Keynote address in the Conference.  Participation in this Conference is by invitation.
