Berne Union President Beatriz Reguero to present welcome address to a cross-industry gathering of public and private institutions at the 2020 IfTI Global Symposium 

We are delighted to announce that the Berne Union is supporting the organisation of the 2020 IfTI Global Symposium, hosted by the Institute for Trade and Innovation (IfTI) at Offenburg University (27-28 April 2020).
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.

Those interested in participating can register via the Berne Union webvsite, here: REGISTER | and can view the latest agenda at the IfTI site, here: VIEW AGENDA

Non BU members should email us for an invitation code.
