"The Joint Statement Initiative sessions with ICC and the Digital Trade Network are a good way to influence the World Trade Organization. They allow the technical experts to interact with the policy makers and provide them with detailed and focused materials not easily available elsewhere."

"The banking industry is designing more and more green products. We need to find appropriate ways to finance (green) innovation and start-ups. There are challenges selling green products to consumers and raising awareness. This is why events like this are important, helping us to align our products and key message with the needs and values of consumers."

ICC United Kingdom and The London Institute of Banking & Finance are pleased to announce their exclusive partnership for 2019, with the aim of endorsing skills pathways in trade finance education. Promoting specific trade finance skills is becoming increasingly important in protecting the future of trade finance, as more focus is needed to enhance the workforce that will ultimately be involved in the move towards paperless trade – a critical transformation period.
