The Hong Kong Trade Finance Dialogue
Friday, July 4th 2014, The Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong
MILSTE is organizing an important breakfast dialogue among decision makers and experts in trade finance, to discuss how the RMB is impacting Hong Kong’s trade finance industry, and how technology and emerging trends in commodity finance are shaping it.
The trade finance industry in Hong Kong has been seeing rapid changes in the last few years as the RMB becomes more important in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. Hong Kong trade finance executives and commodity finance managers, and even supply chain bankers, are now taking the RMB seriously and integrating it into all their operations.
Southeast Asia has become an important commodity industry for Hong Kong businesses as it continues to import important commodities from the region and export technologies there. And technology in trade finance departments in Hong Kong banks are advancing at unprecedented speeds in cloud computing and via SWIFT systems to allow them to continue to monitor their clients actions and supply them with unique services in trade finance.
The breakfast dialogue will focus broadly on the following challenges and updates facing Hong Kong’s commodity financing industry:
Who will attend?
More than 15 key executives from around 10-15 leading banks in Hong Kong are handpicked to attend, with about 10-20 of their supporting managers participating as observers. It will be a small but high-level dialogue representing structured trade, commodity financing, technology, transactional banking and supply chain finance.
MILSTE’s Hong Kong Trade Finance Dialogue is designed in a roundtable format, featuring handpicked decision makers discussing important topics. Participating companies will sit at the roundtable and contribute to the dialogue and will have the opportunity to give a presentation
