The Symposium will address practical issues relating to how public and private actors can support innovation, foreign trade and economic development and explore how exporters can remain competitive in a multipolar and fragmented world.
Hosted in the stunning German Black Forest, it will bring together 100+ government officials, ECAs, DFIs, MDBs and innovation funds, as well as exporters, innovators, commercial bankers and insurers to share perspectives and approaches through case studies, innovation labs and open discussions on ways to move forward in a world of change.
