8th Annual India Trade & Export Finance Conference
Vivanta by Taj President Hotel
Over 260 delegates converged on Mumbai for Exporta’s 2012 India Trade & Export Finance Conference, which consisted of prominent multinational and SME corporates, local and international financial institutions and all those trade finance practitioners involved in one of the world’s most exciting and dynamic economies.
As the Indian economy shows little sign of slowing and its ever expanding influence throughout Asia continues, the conference was well timed to tackle the issues the country is facing, such as the escalating rate of inflation and the growing concern surrounding the import/export trade balance. The keynote address by Mr. Chakraborty, Head of Research, India of Standard Chartered Bank, was an informative and wide ranging macro perspective on the key facts and figures of the Indian economy, which created a solid starting point for the day’s agenda.
Highly respected corporate organisations, such as Essar Group and Reliance Industries, gave their unique and valuable perspectives on the corporate demand for funding and the difficulties of finding affordable liquidity. The delegates were also able to hear presentations and participate in panel discussions on essential subjects, such as the benefits of using Rmb settlements, best practices in collateral management, India’s position within the Asian continent, the trade service provision and adoption of supply chain finance, the demand and risk appetite for Indian trade finance as well as the role of export finance and ECAs in facilitating trade.
As with all Exporta conferences, networking was a key theme throughout the day. A special networking lunch, provided by National Australia Bank, was attended by over 210 delegates and the evening reception gave attendees the opportunity to continue the day’s discussions in a more informal setting.
The conference welcomed support by eminent institutions, such as ICICI Bank, Misys, ANZ, Barclays Bank, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, FIMBank, India Factoring, National Australia Bank, UBI Banca and Bankers Accuity, as well as partnerships with Swift and Berne Union.
