Dear CERBA Members and Partners,

We would like to invite you to the upcoming GTR Russia 2019Russia trade & export finance conference on March 27, organized by a CERBA Partner – Global Trade Review (GTR).

Recent government ambitions to propel Russia into the top five world economies by 2024 have brought about increased focus on national imports and exports, meaning GTR Russia 2019 coincides with a crucial juncture for the market. By giving increased attention to the corporate experience in both the import and export space, as well as offering a platform for local and international ECAs to offer their perspectives and plans, this event will provide attendees with a not to be missed round up of the Russian trade finance industry.

As the only event of its kind for the Russian market, this conference allows both domestic and international delegates to meet face-to-face to discuss their priorities and hear directly from expert speakers and industry influencers on topics ranging from fintech evolution, corporate treasury priorities and considerations, to geo-political influencers and supply chain finance development.

The participation in the event will bring the most benefits to companies actively involved in the Russian market.
