With the shadow of protectionism hanging ominously over the world economy, it’s no secret that global trade has seen better days. Meanwhile, with de-risking in full swing across the global banking system, the challenge of financing trade remains considerable. Yet none of this has put the brakes on innovation. If anything, new solutions for financing trade are proliferating, allowing SMEs and larger corporations alike to find fresh ways to hedge their risks and get deals done in an increasingly complex environment.
LatinFinance’s inaugural Trade Finance in Latin America (TFLA) conference will convene key Latin American exporters, regional and international lenders, export credit agencies and multilateral development banks to examine the outlook for trade finance in the region. The discussions will be pan-regional in scope, bringing in perspectives from public and private sector players from across the Americas.
