Event Overview

Featuring the keynote Agency Finance Panel: Sinosure, China EXIM Bank, NEXI and US Exim Bank debate the vital role of agency finance in partnering with private sector finance to support trade during the current economic downturn.

Despite weakening global demand following the economic downturn it still seems clear that China will continue to drive export growth in Asia, acting as a hub in developing intra-Asian trade as well as an export gateway to the rest of the world.
In these economic conditions, trade and export finance will become a critical tool for effective risk mitigation and a return to stronger structures of old is likely.
This conference will, as it has done for the last 7 years, provide a forum for the trade finance communities of the Asia-Pacific region and beyond to debate the role of structured trade and export finance, the support of export credit agencies (ECAs), and the growing demand for trade and political risk insurance.
