The purpose of the public meeting is to assess the current level of interest among domestic stakeholders in the Hague Trusts Convention.

Eleven countries, in whole or in part, are parties to the Convention, including most common-law jurisdictions and a small number of civil-law countries in Europe. The Office of the Assistant Legal Adviser for Private International Law is considering whether U.S. ratification of the Convention would be beneficial, as part of a more general initiative to try to address the domestic implementation of private international law treaties. For example, it would be useful to learn of the types of issues that may be confronted by those persons involved in handling trusts that have cross-border aspects, and the potential impact that the Convention would have on these issues.
