ICC Banking Commission Annual Meeting
3 April - 6 April| €500
The ICC Banking Commission meetings are the only events of their kind gathering 500+ banking executives and government officials from more than 65 countries to rethink the future of trade finance, encourage governments, regulatory bodies and G20 leaders to remove obstacles to trade finance, and stimulate economic growth and job creation.
Under the theme “The Future of Trade Finance: Traditional, Technological and Transformational”, the Annual Meeting 2017 will feature high-level keynote and panel speakers in a series of informative and interactive plenary and breakout sessions as well as lively roundtable discussions addressing particular global challenges and trends in trade finance.
Primarily, the Annual Meeting will put the digitisation of trade finance under the spotlight – focusing on its power to simplify and reduce the costs of our business, while also allowing banks to better serve small- to medium-sized enterprises and stimulate trade.
Our popular breakout sessions will examine the state of trade in Asia- Pacific, concentrating on multilateralism and the state of trade negotiations. Furthermore, ICC Banking Commission task forces and working groups will meet to discuss technical topics related to bank guarantees, supply chain finance, factoring, forfaiting and regulation.
