Exporta are delighted to return to Jakarta for the 3rd Annual Indonesia Trade & Commodity Finance Conference. This prestigious annual event is the only dedicated gathering of local and international trade finance practitioners in Indonesia and is now a central point from which valuable industry contacts can be made – as well as knowledge sharing between high-level delegates.
With a desirable annual growth rate, many of the world’s leading banks and private businesses are flocking to the country to establish business lines in one of the most exciting, burgeoning and stable emerging markets in the global trade landscape. A wealth of natural resources, combined with a central geographical position within lucrative Asian south-south trade flows, means Indonesia is likely to sustain its desirable growth rates and the attention of global players.
Marking the importance of local business practices and opportunities, the conference will bring together local and international businesses to give case studies on specific industry deals. The conference will also cover key topics such as the innovation of product development, trade credit insurance, Islamic finance, domestic and regional trade flows as well as how end users of commodity finance are realigning their priorities in light of changing global trade dynamics.
As with all Exporta events, networking is a key theme throughout the extensive one day conference. With so many international banks, corporates, ECAs and traders, mixing with local financial institutions and SMEs, the networking opportunities are an essential way of creating new business prospects.
