130. Contract on behalf of foreign principal.

Where a contract is made by an agent on behalf of a foreign principal there is no presumption that the agent necessarily incurs personal liability and has no authority to establish privity of contract between the principal and the third party1. Where the intention of the parties is not clear or the terms of the contract are in dispute, the fact that the principal is a foreigner is a factor to be taken into account in determining whether in the circumstances the contract is enforceable by or against the foreign principal or whether the agent is personally liable
