GTR Trade Finance Week is an event hosted by the Global Trade Review which is the world’s leading news source, publisher and event organiser for the global trade, commodity and export finance markets. The London based organisation has hosted the Trade Finance Week in Cape Town South Africa for the past 11 years and has returned to the mother city once again this year.
ECIC participated at the GTR Finance Week that took place at the Westin Hotel in Cape Town from the 09 -10 March 2017. The GTR event is a meeting for bankers, financiers, industry regulators, ECA’s and multilaterals and is one of the largest global trade finance events. The 2017 event is incorporating GTR’s West Africa Trade & Export Finance Conference, for increased coverage on developments in key markets such as Nigeria, Ghana and the Francophone region.
The event focused on the extensive trade, export, commodity and infrastructure financing opportunities available across the continent, providing unrivalled access to those companies and institutions currently doing business in Africa, including regional and global corporates, financiers and trade specialists.
ECIC Head of Business Development, Portia Gumbo Dube, was on the special ECA’s panel discussion under the topic “What role do ECAs have to play in the trade current climate”?
