The ICC Global Finance Forum – taking place from 25-27 April – will bring together a diverse network of over 3,000 international participants from the public and private sectors to align their trade finance ambitions and actions for the next decade. Santander and Trade Finance Global join ICC in this endeavor as supporting partners.
With sessions hosted by leading business, industry association and non-governmental organization partners, the forum will also help catalyze coherent policy dialogue on key business and financial issues. Discussion topics include mobilizing finance to promote sustainability in global supply chains, integrating interoperability into digital trade ecosystems and closing the estimated $1.7 trillion trade finance gap Americans.
ICC Director of Banking and Financial Policy, Tomasch Kubiak, said: “ICC’s World Banking Commission annual meeting has traditionally brought together more than 400 trade finance experts, banking professionals, business leaders, lawyers and government officials. The transition to an online, partner-led format ensure that critical information and case studies from publications such as the ICC The commercial register and the ICC–McKinsey–Fung Academy report on Rethinking the trade finance ecosystem reach the widest possible audience of practitioners and decision makers.
To complement the live and pre-recorded conference content, ICC will facilitate virtual networking experiences on the event platform, ensuring that lasting connections are made between trade and trade finance professionals. To date, more than 500 professionals from 61 countries have registered to attend. Potential participants are invited to register for the conference here.
