Conference attendees addressed the global economic outlook, the unique challenges facing the credit insurance industry today, newly-emerging forms of trade receivables securitization, new platforms for exchange between corporates and financial institutions, the difficulties facing commodity companies and traders, the changing trade finance legal landscape in the Americas, and the expanding global roles of development finance institutions Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior (Bladex).
The event attendees list included trade insurers, receivables finance creditors, development finance institution members, export credit agencies such as the Export Development Bank of Canada (EDC), legal advisers to companies engaged in international trade and data services companies offering trade players the power to make informed decisions.
