Mitigating the trade finance gap for increased public-private interplay and
sustainable trade to enable regional growth


Among the countries of ASEAN, the trade windows are anticipated to broaden, owing to the implementation of non-tariff measures on essential items. While trade and, thus, trade finance witnessed a decline in 2020 due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the trade has recovered and increased in 2021 and is anticipated to grow, aiding the growth of the trade finance industry in ASEAN.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic fueled a growing funding gap and exposed supply chain vulnerabilities, with real economy participants pressured to seek alternative funding sources.

Meanwhile 2021 has brought on a commodities price boom that has led to much commentary from traders, analysts and media of a new commodities super-cycle similar to 2004 and 2011. This post-pandemic surge increased demand across the board had helped in the trade flows and consequently trade finance, which serves as the lifeblood of day-to-day international trade by providing the fluidity and security needed to allow for the movement of goods and services.

Trade Finance India Summit 2021 will showcase the latest innovations for both domestic and cross-border financing, examining the future of technology enabled supply chain models, and driving the conversation on increasing access of trade finance in the region. With local governments, regional and international corporations and banks/ investors all actively encouraging the development of local and cross-border trade finance programs, it is now, more than ever before, vital to review the latest developments in this market and understand how to capitalize on opportunities in this region.
