7th and 10th December 2020
How is the Marketplace Adjusting Amid the Crisis?
Practical workshop exploring how COVID, Climate and Globalisation are disrupting traditional finance structures and how public and private institutions can cooperate to tackle gaps for trade, liqudity and essential infrastructure
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 the workshop is defined by the macro-level changes driven by COVID, climate change and globalisation, as well as the international policy-context these entail, but the focus of the discussions will be on practical opportunities for cross-sector cooperation between practitioners in:
- Public / Private
- Traditional / Fintech
- Domestic / Cross-border
- Trade / Development
- Insurance / Finance
We will publish the final outcomes and distribute these to participants and contributors following the workshop
