Angola is to become the 157th signatory state to the New York Convention. Angola’s accession was approved by Resolution No. 38/2016 of 12 August 2016 of the Angolan National Assembly, but is yet to take effect.
Angola now needs to deposit the resolution with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, with the convention then coming into force after a further 90 days. As do many states, Angola will accede to the New York Convention subject to the reciprocity reservation, whereby it will apply the convention to awards issued in another member state.
