Conferences and events
The EBRD organizes conferences which bring together key market players and civil society stakeholders (including NGOs) opinion makers, business organisations, academics, think-tanks, local authorities and government officials to analyse the latest challenges in the trade finance sector and identify the most lucrative ways to overcome them in the current economic environment.
One of the most notable of these meetings is the Trade Facilitation Programme (TFP) one-day event, organised in a conference format, which is held within the framework of the EBRD’s Annual Meeting and Business Forum in May every year. The event offers an opportunity to share contemporary trade finance banking expertise through prsentations by professional trade finance bankers and specialists. It also provides the stage for signing agreements with banks that have recently joined the TFP and hosts an award ceremony for the most active TFP banks in the previous year.
