1 Day Event

GTR returned to São Paulo on April 14 for its annual Latin America Trade Finance Conference. With 35+ speakers and support from over 20 sponsors and partners, the conference was a priority for business leaders and trade finance specialists from across the region to meet and discuss future trade priorities.

A keynote address by Guilherme Nastari, Director of Datagro and the Brazilian Sugar & Ethanol Exports Association (AEXA), discussed how Latin American agribusiness trends have developed in light of reducing prices, the impact of the slowing global commodity super-cycle and its effects on production, as well as the demand and appetite for soft commodities and agri products across the region. Key manufacturing industries were also under the spotlight as Paulo Tonicelli, Chief Executive Officer of Schuler Group, and Raquel Duarte, Head of Export Credit Division at The Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES), presented a case study examining the financing structures used by Brazilian companies, while also outlining how other firms should be looking to expand overseas.

Incorporating interactive panel discussions, practical case studies, presentations and interviews the conference further established its standing as the largest discussion and networking forum for anyone conducting trade in Latin America.
