Disrupting Trade Finance


28th April,2021


During the coronavirus outbreak, the world economy has likely suffered a long and painful economic recession. The trade finance sector was crowned a year of political instability in 2020. India is among the 15 most-affected economies due to Covid-19 with a trade impact of $348 million as per UN reports.

In this exclusive virtual webinar, we will be exploring the current state of Indian trade and the aspects that are reshaping it. The webinar optimizes interactive discussions between the attendees and speakers covering the trade finance market holistically. The industry’s most influential professionals will also shed light on the current trade finance transactions, supply chain finance, improving the trade credit claims, etc.

In addition to thought leadership sessions, the virtual event will also focus on panel discussions.



This virtual event will delve into the most pertinent discussion topics impacting Indian trade and exports, from supply chain challenges, geopolitical considerations (including free trade agreements), support for exporters, digitisation drives and the measures taken across both public and private sector to aid business recovery.

This virtual event will host 100+ CFO’s, Group Financial Controllers, Head of Finance, Treasurers, Senior Business Executives, Head of Supply Chain, Policymakers and representatives of leading multilateral financial institutions.
