Getting Started

This guide has been created as a starting place for finding information and resources on international business law.1

International business law relates to a wide range of business transactions across each type of international commerce:

  • export and import of goods and services
  • foreign direct investment
  • joint ventures
  • research and development arrangements
  • franchising
  • sale and distribution arrangements and
  • licensing of intellectual property.

The expansion and globalisation of international trade is due to the success of organisations such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO) who negotiate and regulate treaties and agreements.
