Understanding how international finance is changing
Developing practical opportunities for cross-sector cooperation

This workshop will explore the changing environment in which the 'marketplace' of international trade and development finance is operating. 

We will discuss the response to the COVID-19 crisis from public and private sector institutions and explore together the practical implications for two specific gaps in finance of trade and economic development:

- Domestic Liquidity and trade support for SMEs 
- Financing the Green Transition

The background to this workshop is the macro-level changes driven by COVID, climate change and globalisation, as well as the internaitonal policy-context these entail, but the focus of the discussions will be on practical opportunities for cross-sector cooperation between practitioners in:

public / private | insurance / finance | traditional / fintech | trade / development | domestic / cross-border
