OVERVIEW: What impact has the Movement Control Order (MCO) had on your business’ ability to fulfil its contractual obligations? Have others been forced to breach your contracts? The MCO currently set to last for at least six weeks has made it extremely difficult for many businesses to keep afloat and honour their contracts. Many are just waiting, but what will happen post-MCO? Our speakers identified the important clauses in a commercial agreement that may assist in the re-negotiation or dealing with non-performance in obligations of parties.
