The 2001 UNIDROIT Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment (the Cape Town Convention) and its equipment specific Protocols, is considered one of the most important private commercial law conventions. The protocols cover security interests in aircraft objects, railway rolling stock and space assets. 2019 saw the adoption of the Protocol to the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment on Matters Specific to Mining, Agricultural and Construction Equipment (the MAC Protocol). Implementing the Cape Town Convention framework may directly impact the economies of developing countries. Another consequence flowing from the introduction of the Cape Town Convention framework is to provide for a broader outlook towards secured transactions law reform.
