The New FIDIC Suite of Contracts, officially launched at this conference in December 2017, has been received with great interest by the global construction industry generating high levels of engagement and debate amongst Users and advisers alike. As Consulting Engineers, Employers, Contractors, and Construction Law professionals form a view on the capabilities of the 2017 Suite, our panel of FIDIC experts and Contracts' Committee members will briefly remind delegates of the main changes introduced and the reasons why these were decided by FIDIC to be necessary or an improvement, and proceed to briefly respond to some of the points raised in the many articles and commentary on the new Suite published in the last few months, thus continuing the dialog started last year. This session will help set the scene for the morning sessions addressing the way in which the new Suite of Contracts has been received by the global industry.
