The international contract is of interest to all states because of its value. It represents a way in which international exchanges can be realized, its role in international economic relations giving the parties the opportunity to use the advantages of arbitration and autonomy of will. The main legal instrument used to promote international relations is the contract. Compared to other fields, the legal relationships resulting from contracts are numerous and frequent. International trade contracts are distinguished by certain particularities, because according to their nature, they constitute a form of contracts regarding commercial activity. However, international trade contracts, compared to domestic contracts, do not remain subject to national law and differ from them by the existence of specific elements of internationality. An important moment in the existence of a contract is that of formation. All aspects related to the formation of contractual relations are influenced by the exact knowledge and correct application of the practice of concluding the contract. International trade contracts differ from commercial contracts concluded between participants in domestic trade by means of the extraneous element it contains, an element that, together with the commerciality element, delimits the international trade contract from the other contracts that are regulated by the rules of general law. From the category of contracts that are part of the field of international trade law, the franchise contract has had a rapid evolution, having the ability to adapt and introduce new services, products and techniques to the market, the extent of which has taken over time having practically no tendency to decrease nowadays, more and more merchants end up concluding such contracts. Thus, the franchise contract is both a relatively safe and cheap method of obtaining profit, as well as the most agreeable tool of globalization, attributed to the current consumer society.
