The African Export-Import Bank’s (Afreximbank) has invited African banking and trade finance professionals to the 2017 edition of its yearly Structured Trade Finance Seminar and Workshops scheduled to take place from 6 to 9 November in Sal, Cape Verde.
The four-day event, expected to attract some 200 participants from banks and other financial institutions across Africa, is aimed at strengthening the capacity of the stakeholders in understanding international trade and trade-related project financing issues.
It is being organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance of Cape Verde.
President of Afreximbank, Dr. Benedict Oramah, in Cairo, Egypt, said that the event was also an important platform for African bankers and other trade finance practitioners to meet and network, thereby making a major contribution in boosting African trade.
This year’s speakers will include top experts from leading financial institutions and firms, as well as key financial services regulators from Africa and beyond.
The participants will be senior executives drawn from African banks and financial institutions, regulatory institutions, hedge funds, Africa country funds, venture capital institutions, corporate entities engaged in trade, manufacturing and privatised infrastructure projects, Afreximbank’s trade finance and project finance intermediaries, African law firms and insurance firms.
The 2017 Seminar, the 17th in the yearly series, is part of Afreximbank’s effort to prepare African banks and financial institutions to meet the trade finance needs of the continent.
Registration instructions, together with the programme details for the 2017 seminar and workshops, will soon be made available on the Afreximbank website to assist bankers and other professionals interested in participating.
