Exporta’s Africa Trade Finance Week, incorporating the 7th Annual Africa Export & Trade Finance Conference alongside various stream sessions, roundtables and networking events, will be taking place at The Westin in Cape Town on March 4-6, 2013.
Now firmly established as the premier trade finance meeting in the region, the new extended format will cover the importance of the world and regional trade flows in one of the world’s most profitable and attractive markets.
Reflecting on the impressive progress being experienced in the region, attending delegates will have much to discuss, with particular focus on the changing funding requirements and priorities of African companies as they continue growing their trade flows. With around 300 delegates expected in attendance, including companies of all sizes and from all manner of sectors, strong emphasis will be placed on the role of both Africa’s prodigious commodity resources, as well as the continuing need for infrastructural development.
Recognising the importance of face-to-face interaction when conducting business, large emphasis will be placed on the importance of networking over the course of the week, with delegates being given the opportunity to develop and organise private meetings via Exporta in the lead-up to proceedings.
