Event Overview


The global economic slowdown has had dramatic effects on businesses active in the Asia Pacific region. With this in mind, ECAs, multilaterals and development banks are playing an increasing role to facilitate global trade and investments in and out of Asia.

The Development and Agency Finance Asia Pacific Conference is a key assembly for the most influential agencies from around the world working in Asia and beyond to discuss what they are doing to get deals financed in this market.

International agencies are rapidly adapting to their increasingly vital role, broadening their mandates and widening their remit to facilitate trade and investment in infrastructure. Agencies’ support is more critical than ever, they are implementing steps to take on increasing risk in transactions and stepping up the amount of liquidity they provide for corporates through direct lending.

At this event, agencies, financiers, importers and exporters will network and discuss the ways to do business in the current market in this region. With Euromoney Seminars, Project Finance and Trade Finance extensive experience with bringing together key agencies from around the world to meet corporates and financiers involved in infrastructure, power, trade and export finance in Asia, this event promises to be a timely gathering for key decision makers.

Register today to secure your place at this not-to-be-missed event.

A special rate of US$1,099 is available for agencies, development banks and multilateral institutions. Please contact Kelly Yau ( for further information.
