COVID-19: How global trade finance is being disrupted and redefined

In this webcast, panelists discuss the impact of COVID-19 on global trade and how banks and corporates are responding. 

The impact of COVID-19 on the global economy and global trade is profound. How banks and corporates respond could minimize the fallout on the much needed, and over-burdened supply chain. How banks provide corporate clients with the liquidity and credit they need, while mitigating their own risk, will be essential to consumers and the economy alike. And, how both respond will have short and long-term implications.

Join the International Trade and Forfaiting Association (ITFA) and EY banking and supply chain professionals, as we explore the challenges and risks facing the banking and corporate sectors. 

In particular, we will cover:

  • Challenges from a bank’s perspective; how banks are managing delivery and risk while meeting client expectations
